Patrice Evra believes Alexis Sanchez moved to Manchester United because of the huge wages he was offered. 

Sanchez, who joined United from Arsenal in January last year, is one of the highest earners at the club with weekly wages in the region of £500,000.  

But despite his huge pay, the Chilean has failed to reproduce his lethal Arsenal form in Manchester, scoring just five goals in all competitions since he joined.  

And now, United legend Evra thinks it was all down to financial gain. 

“Some players only come for the money, I am not afraid to say that,” he told Sky Sports

“I have nothing against him, but Sanchez, when I saw the deal, that's when I thought the Manchester United history just went down.

“He had Manchester City, they were offering less money but he was going to play a better football than United - I'm sorry about that, but City play better football.

“Guardiola will also improve him.

“So I want to know what is the real reason for choosing United?

“Don't tell me he loved Manchester United when he was a kid.

“It's either the money or he wanted to be the number one, take the No 7 shirt and be the star.”

Sanchez, 30, has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer embarks on a rebuilding mission for next season.
