ESPN Expert believes that the 30 year old would perform better than if he replaces Lukaku.
Manchester United may never Sign a player to replace Romelu Lukaku who is on the verge of joining Inter Milan, and may be forced to replace him with Alexis Sanchez.
Mark Ogden on ESPN claims that Manchester United are planning to back Alexis Sanchez to fill the shoes left by Romelu Lukaku if the Belgian was to leave this summer.
The pundit asserts that United selling Lukaku is ‘a gamble’. He said “If you can give Sanchez some love, just tell him you’re going to give him a chance, he will deliver much more than Romelu Lukaku”.
Alexis Sanchez has probably had the worst of his career since joining Manchester United in January 2018 from Arsenal. Scoring just five goals in 45 appearances all together.
Lukaku who wants a move away from old Trafford has had major interests from Inter Milan and also from the likes of Juventus. Ogden believes with both on form, Alexis Sanchezis a better player than Lukaku.
The pundit has advised Manchester United to let Lukaku go and get Sanchez back to work by replacing him for the Belgian since no one wants to buy him because of his wage bills.
He believes that Sanchez at his best would perform better. He also thinks that “Sanchez is worth persevering” as perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku.
