A Breakdown Of How Much Alexis Sanchez Has Earned Since Joining MUFC
Alexis Sanchez hasn’t really done much apart from playing a piano and taking a few pictures with Atom and Humber since his big money move to Manchester United last year.
The Chilean has struggled to make any sort of impact in recent months. In fact, he hasn’t featured in a full 90 minute game for 258 days, which says all you need to know about his time at Old Trafford.
In the meantime, with the odd substitute appearance here and there, the winger has pocketed a hell of a lot of cash since his transfer from Arsenal.
Sanchez has earned an eye watering £391,000 a week at Old Trafford in his 65 week spell with the club, which means he has almost picked up £30 million in total.
Football Leaks revealed last year that there are a number of clauses in Alexis’ contract at United, including a sum of 75,000 for every game he starts and a £1.1 million annual signing on fee.
The club also promised him £2 million for 40 goals and assists in a season, and a £1 million bonus if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side win the Champions League.
But there’s no chance of either of those two things happening in the near future.
Back in March last year, while on international duty, a deflated Sanchez made some insightful and honest comments regarding his time at Manchester United, revealing his struggles.
“Seeing as I demand a lot of myself, I expected something better,” said Sanchez of his time at Old Trafford.
“After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly.”
The 30-year-old even admitted that his form had dropped so low that he considered pulling out of his national side’s friendly in Sweden.
“I even hesitated to come here [Sweden],” stated Sanchez.
“I had asked permission to miss these games and stay in England, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united.
“The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”
Do you think Sanchez should leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window?
