    I'd hope so. He's worth what 10-20 Million? (More if he had shown any kind of form)

    So the buyer is essentially paying him 10 million a year so, in a way, they're getting him for nothing for a year or two.

    That goal against Barcelona to secure passage to the CL final paid back his transfer fee. That one goal is worth more than Sanchez’ entire time at United.

    Yeah would be much better if Juve took him off us as that would put more of an onus on Inter to sign Lukaku.

    Seems harsh to me. We offered the contract, he accepted - who are we to demand he go against his own interests now that things haven't worked out?

    He always seems to put in the effort for me, he's just shot as a top-level footballer, nobodies fault really. I was over the moon when he signed!

    By all accounts he seems to be a decent guy who doesn't necessarily put money ahead of football, I hope he does well at his next club. But yeah, his time here has to come to an end this summer.

    Or the opposite happens like when clubs know you have a lot of cash due to a transfer...players/agents will see that there's more budget and ask to eat into that because of a player sale. Or it's allocated to another few players. Either way, no United player has the leverage to ask for more wages based on this season.

    It's a poor atmosphere if you have agents and players pointing and bickering at specific players because they make more money than you. Stuff like that shouldn't be filtering into the dressing room, but it unfortunately does. However that should never get in the way of being a professional and having pride.

    If the rest of the team put in the effort he did we might not be in this mess.

    Shame it has not worked out.

    God I hope ed doesn't mess around trying to get a fee. Put clubs off and we'll end up with him still here next season.

    nah. Sanchez is / was used to having a team built around him.

    At United, there are/were multiple people who can drive the team forward. He wasnt used to that and how the way it was set up.

    Ed has to maximise his investment so naturally he will ask for a fee. We arent a charity.

    A straight swap for Cancelo would be perfect.

    There is no way he is going anywhere unless he takes a massive pay cut and the question is why would he?

    Depends on how much he likes playing football and maintaining an image. I'm pretty sure he knows he will get minimal playing time here and will just eventually fade into obscurity, so if he wants to avoid that he has to take a pay cut. I do still wonder though what the feck we were thinking giving him those insane wages in the first place

    The most pointless signing ever. Sell him while We still have a chance! send him to China if needed.

    Would be a victory if we can get his wages off our book, and it will help balance the wage structure to a massive extent.

    But why would Juve want him? Could it just be his agent trying to create a market for him?

    We have to pay him 25m a year, there is still 2 years remaining in his contract, selling him for free will actually save us 50m, especially when he offers nothing on the pitch, it’s s great deal for us at this point.

    That is not how it works. Every club has a wage structure in place (well, except for us, apparently). Sanchez's huge wages will disrupt most teams' wage structure. Clubs will be wary of that

    Also helps with the rest of the squad who no longer have a 400k a week player on the bench to compare their own wages with when they make demands!

    It's amazing a package Ed offered him. To think he gets 1/3rd of Chevy annual revenue stream.

    The Chevy Marketing VP got fired for what was considered a ludicrous deal he made with Ed.... Just sayin'

    Would be a great start to the summer to move Sanchez on. Shame as I was excited at the prospect of him playing for us, but he has stunk the place up since he came in barring the assists to Pogba away at citeh last year.

    I don’t see anybody having ‘driven the team’ the last season. This is exactly what has been missing

    Pointless. Rather keep him than let him go to inter.

    Looked a huge signing for us and it's just been such a disappointment for every one..incredible really.

    Us waiving a fee is still a big deal, as we did swap a 30m player for him, and you wouldn't get a championship striker for less than 10-15m these days.

    But unless inter or who ever can find huge wages there's no way he's taking a huge hit on a 3 year deal

    Keeping him is the worst possible scenario for us. Insane wages and every contract renewal has been going shit.

    Would you rather sign him on a free for £350,000 a week than let Inter sign him?

    Yea. Having a significant % of our wage budget sitting on the bench every week would be great from a United perspective

    Strange.

    This is terrific news. People complain about deadwood but then have issues with them being sold because it's not their least favourite deadwood.

    Aye. Getting him away to anywhere in almost any circumstances this summer would suit us. Getting something back for him, like some kind of makeweight for a Dybala or a Canelo, would be a bonus.

    Yeah, if we can use him to get someone like Dybala or Cancelo then it would be awesome for us.

    With the caveat that they actually want to come here of course. The days of getting names in from Europe who are obviously coming for the huge wages and nothing else needs to end. City and Liverpool have proven it is possible in the modern era to attract great players to the North West who are supremely well paid but crucially buy into the club.

    Yeah, also paying huge agent fee helped Liverpool.

    We need mix of things though, they are already paid good money, so we have to pay them even more and also sell them our plans in much better way.

    According to his rumored contract, he is at least worth 43 million pounds for his remaining contract.

    We already paid Sanchez for 2 years worth of salary which cost us 28 million pound. That is mental.

    Inter needs to pay us 20 million pounds if we want to break even and cut the loss.

    Fully agree, I'm certainly not saying we don't have to splash the cash where necessary, as that's exactly what Liverpool did on two key players in terms of transfer fees, wages and as you say agent fees too.

    Agree with this. In short, we should be sensible in the transfer market. If the Sanchez news is true, at least we are in right direction. It's a start, hopefully more will follow.

    Given how finished (not just shite) he has looked (factor in his last six months for Arsenal in that too), I'm surprised anyone half ambitious would be interested in him.
