Sanchez Man Utd US Tour Delayed

Alexis Sanchez has not travelled out with the Manchester United squad for their summer tour of the USA due to administrative issues.

The Chilean trained with his team-mates at the club’s Carrington training complex last week following their return to duty on Wednesday, but was then missing from the check-in list as they embarked upon their tour at Manchester Airport on Sunday.

On Monday he caused a stir among the United fan base by posting a picture of himself on Instagram with a new haircut, but all the while making no reference to his no-show status.

But it has now been confirmed that Sanchez has been given time to resolve a personal administrative issue, and the club are hopeful that he will be free to join them within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Sanchez has been a key member of Jose Mourinho’s first team since arriving from Arsenal in January in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but much is expected of him in his first full season in United colours in 2018-19.

The delay to Sanchez’s arrival is a blow for Mourinho’s planning for the US tour, which gets underway with a friendly fixture against Club America in Glendale, Arizona on Thursday.
