Alexis Sanchez's decision to sign for Manchester United is under the spotlight
Alexis Sanchez finds himself under the spotlight on Saturday when Manchester United visit Manchester City, the team that he came close to joining in January. City will win the title with a win, so did Sanchez make the right choice? Adam Bate takes a look…
If Alexis Sanchez had any doubts about the level of scrutiny upon him at Manchester United, his first two months at the club will have dispelled them. Of course, he has been under the pump before at Arsenal. He has played in the Barcelona hothouse, too. But 11 games into his new job and the question marks over his role could still have been a little alarming.
Such is the situation at Jose Mourinho's Manchester United right now. No matter that Sanchez has already been named man of the match on three occasions for his new team. No matter that Sanchez has won four of the last five games that he has played for United - including victories over champions Chelsea and great rivals Liverpool.
