Alexis Sanchez refusing to leave Man Utd this summer despite Solskjaer axe as Roma look at other transfer targets
ALEXIS SANCHEZ is refusing to go quietly and leave Manchester United this summer.
The £505,000-a-week flop has stalled over a loan to Roma for the season after falling out of favour under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And the Italians are now looking at other targets as Sanchez, 30, drags his heels over ending a nightmare 18 months at Old Trafford.
SunSport revealed yesterday that Sanchez faces being banished from the first-team squad should he stay.
Solskjaer is ready to give Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood more starts this campaign.
Loaning Sanchez, who has a hamstring issue, to Roma, with the Serie A club paying a chunk of his wages, looked like an option when they showed interest.
But they are now looking at Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi as they fear a deal for Sanchez will not be possible.

Shocking statistics show how Sanchez’s career has collapsed since he joined from Arsenal in January 2018.
The 130-cap Chile international has scored just three times in 32 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils – averaging 641 minutes per strike.
And the struggling forward will have banked an incredible £41million in wages from United as of this week.
