Mourinho orders Man Utd duo to deal with pressure and grow up


With his image rights and bonuses included, the 29-year-old Sanchez could earn up to an eye-watering £600,000 on a weekly basis.

The Chile global joined the Red Devils as part of a swap deal that saw fellow attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan head the opposite way, lured to Old Trafford by the offer of reported wages in excess of £500,000 a week.

Manchester United are unlikely to be Alexis Sanchez's last club, with the Chilean planning to represent Universidad de Chile before hanging up his boots.

Manchester United winger Alexis Sanchez has revealed that being the best-paid player in the Premier League "fills him with pride".

Things have not exactly gone to plan on the pitch for Sanchez since moving to Old Trafford, he has scored just once in ten appearances, and seems to be struggling to find his role in Jose Mourinho's team.

Speaking about Wenger, Sanchez revealed that he had a close relationship with his former Manager.

"He was very fond of me and he didn't want to let me go", Sanchez told Chilean television.

"The pressure doesn't play against me, it helps me".

"No Chilean had played here".

Big things were expected of both Sanchez and Pogba when they both arrived on Old Trafford soil, but they have failed to deliver so far, with Sanchez giving the ball away 247 times, during his time in a United shirt, 104 more than any other United player. Arsene understood it at last, we ended up on good terms, he congratulated me and there was no problem, ' Sanchez added.

Alexis, who lives with beloved pet dogs Atom and Humber, admitted in the interview which took place in Manchester: 'I still haven't got over it.

"I feel like an important player at world level".

"After the match against Brazil I went to London".
