Why Alexis Sanchez missed Manchester United training

Despite returning to Manchester on Thursday, Alexis Sanchez missed Manchester United's training as he was sorting out a visa issue ahead of Chile's friendlies next month.

Sanchez has been linked with a move out of United following a nightmare spell since joining from Arsenal back in January 2018 and has been tipped to join Inter Milan. The out-of-favor Manchester United forward had to make a last-minute trip to London to sort out issues over his visa ahead of Chile's international friendlies in the USA next month.

However, Before Sanchez completed his transfer to United last year, he visited the immigration office in Liverpool to obtain a work permit.

In February 2018, Sanchez was handed a 16-month prison sentence for tax fraud that dated back to his time as a Barcelona player. The Chilean was accused of defrauding the Spanish Treasury of €1million and hiding the income of images rights between 2012 and 2013.
