Sanchez features as Man Utd beat Sheffield United in close door friendly

Alexis Sanchez featured for Man United in a closed-door friendly match against Sheffield United organized by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Tuesday.

This comes despite the striker being heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan with the Italian club representatives said to have arrived in London for negotiation talks earlier this week. 

Apart from Sanchez, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones all featured for this as reported by the Manchester Evening News.

Ahead of United facing Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer organised the game for some of his squad members to pick up much-needed match fitness.

Mata, Andreas Pereira and Mason Greenwood all came on as substitutes at Molineux, but all started this game against Chris Wilder's newly-promoted Blades.
