The astonishing Alexis Sanchez statistics on salary that will anger Arsenal and Manchester United fans

Former Arsenal and Barcelona player Alexis Sanchez hasn’t had the most successful time at Manchester United since joining Red Devils.

The Chilean international has struggled to discover any kind of form and has spent large portions of the current season out injured.

The 30-year-old has had both knee and hamstring injuries that have kept him out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer squads and no doubt Sanchez will be eager to get back in action. But it didn’t make any sense in the salary he earns at United.

The 30-year-old has had both knee and hamstring injuries that have kept him out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer squads and no doubt Sanchez will be eager to get back in action.

But it didn’t play any role in the salary he earns at the Manchester United.

He has been paid almost £5m (£4,881,014) just to sit on the bench – he has sat on the bench for 15 hours and 17 minutes, at £5,323 per minute.

That is more than anyone else in the Premier League and might leave a wry smile on the face of anyone connected to Arsenal.
