Robert Pires rates Alexis Sanchez's chances of making sensational Arsenal return



Alexis Sanchez has been a major disappointment since swapping Arsenal for Manchester United (Picture: Getty)Robert Pires believes it would be virtually impossible for Alexis Sanchez to return to Arsenal amid uncertainty over his Manchester United future.
Sanchez swapped the Emirates for Old Trafford last January but has struggled to rediscover the form which marked him out as one of the Premier League’s most prolific forwards during his time in north London.
United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was critical of Sanchez’s performance during the recent Champions League defeat against Paris Saint-Germain and the former Barcelona star failed to stake a claim for a regular place in the side following to subdued displays against Liverpool and Crystal Palace in the last week.

Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars, touted as a possible candidate for the vacant technical director’s role at the Emirates, suggested recently that Sanchez could make a sensational return to the club at which he won two FA Cup, but Pires cannot envision such a scenario.
‘It would be very strange to see Arsenal sign Sanchez back in the summer,’ the Frenchman told BWin.
‘I don’t see how it makes sense for either Sanchez or Arsenal after how it ended.

‘Sanchez isn’t playing his best football and he is on a lot of money at Manchester Utd which Arsenal are not willing to pay.
‘Sanchez won’t want to come running back to Arsenal with his tail between his legs after having a rough time elsewhere.
‘He will have to hope he returns to form with a fresh chance under [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer at Manchester United.’
