London, Oct 31: Manchester United management has reportedly discussed the options of letting go their star January signing Alexis Sanchez amidst interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
The Chilean who spent four years at Arsenal and helped the club winning two FA Cup titles completed a controversial move to Old Trafford last winter in an exchange deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
However, the hyped move has not lived up to the potential at all as since arriving at Manchester the player has only managed to score four goals in 26 appearances and lately, lost his starting spot.
It is understood that the 29-year-old is unhappy with the current situation and is considering his future outside England. As per reports, French champions Paris Saint-German have shown interest on the Chilean. However, with the player earning a staggering £505,000-a-week, and is by far the highest paid earner in the Manchester United squad, the French giants will only look to trigger the option if they can land him on the cheap or even on a possible free transfer.

PSG, apparently, fear that one of their star players Neymar or Kylian Mbappe might move from France next year for a different challenge and therefore they are reportedly shortlisting the Chilean to replace one of them.

United, on the other hand, believed to be only ready to give the attacker till the end of the season to prove his worth but is not against the idea of letting him go.
The Red Devils are yet to see results for their huge investment and reportedly okay with the idea to get him off the books to PSG potentially if it satisfies all parties.
Sanchez has only one goal and assist in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League this season and seems to have found himself out of manager Jose Mourinho's plans after an improved form of Anthony Martial, who has scored four times in the last four games.
