After being axed by Jose Mourinho, Alexis Sanchez has been left furious and his future at Old Trafford is in doubt.
The Chilen international traveled with the squad to London as West Ham United hosted the Red Devils this weekend. However, he was left stunned after he failed to make the bench despite being 100% fit.
The 29-year-old made it clear, behind the scenes, that he was really upset and angry with his exclusion on Saturday.
He also met up with former Arsenal teammate, Lucas Perez, in the tunnel and reports also suggest that the Chile star regrets his move to the Theatre of Dreams.
This comes after Mourinho and Pogba were seen in a training bust-up last week. And now reports suggest, Pogba wants to leave United in the winter transfer window if Mourinho is still the manager.

With Chile not having a ticket to Russia this summer, there was a belief that Sanchez would be fresh this season. However, he has yet to score for his club so far. His form has not been great either, taking a bad hit.
Chile reports suggest that Mourinho criticized the player for his poor form ahead of the West Ham clash in front of his teammates.
There are also talks of offloading Sanchez, just 12 months after getting him from Arsenal. However, that is easier said than done.
The no. 7 earns almost 350-400k a week after tax and no club would be willing to pay him anywhere near that given his poor form. This figure is now seen as a benchmark by the other players for contract negotiations.
Manchester United and Manchester City went head-to-head in the last winter transfer window for the signature of Sanchez. United ultimately won with Henrik Mikitarian going the other way as a part of the deal.
However, it now seems that City has dodged a bullet. Sure, things could have been different for the player, but we shall never know.
Mourinho’s woes just keep getting bad to worse with each passing week. After a disastrous start to the campaign, it seems like a matter of time before he is gone. Not only has he got to change that situation, but also has to get the locker room back together.
United is in all sorts of trouble now and getting them out of this mess is going to take a lot, even for a new manager. There have been reports that former Real Madrid manager, Zidane could replace the Portuguese.
“Ask him behind you! He wrote it!”
