Neville: Alexis a disaster!

Gary Neville is delighted Alexis Sanchez is leaving Manchester United for Inter. “It’s been a disaster, they need to get him out.”

This is not the first time Neville has been scathing in his assessment of an Inter-bound forward after he hit out at Romelu Lukaku for being ‘overweight’ and ‘unprofessional’.

“I welcomed him coming to the club as he’s a tenacious forward that plays across the line and scores goals. But it’s been a disaster,” he told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“I have no idea what's happened. There must be two of him. The one that played for Arsenal and Barcelona and then the one that’s turned up in Manchester. They need to get him out of the club.

“Romelu Lukaku didn’t want to be there. It’s a phased transition at the club. There’s four or five that don’t want to be there – [Solskjaer] needs to get rid of a couple this year and a couple next year.”

Sanchez moved to United from Arsenal in January 2018, signing on for wages in excess of £500,000 (€545,000) a week.

However, he managed just five goals in 45 games and is now joining the Nerazzurri on loan with a €15m option to buy.
