Sanchez to Roma on loan

Some speculation that Oles not been impressed by him since he's taken over from Jose. The he'll banish Sanchez to the reserves unless he moves and that Sanchez had and argument with Greenwood. Any loan deal would be subsidised by United as Roma are unlikely to be able to pay his full wage (obviously).

As bad as hes been, hes had a few really good moments, ie goal away at Arsenal, Fa Cup v Spurs, that comeback v Newcastle at home, I still hold hope that he could have an impact at Utd.

All memorable moments but hardly worth the outlay sadly.

Maybe as a false nine or a CF. He can longer do it out wide.

His legs have gone. Go and look at earlier clips of him. Full of dynamism, a devastating change of pace and power, skipping past players, running in behind and leaving defenders behind... He can't do that anymore. It happens to players who play at 100mph and who burst into the scene young. He's been playing top flight football for 12 or 13 years and has always been a player than runs himself into the ground everyday. Rooney was similar. Tevez and Torres too. That style has a shelf life.

Sanchez's misfortune with us hasn't been through lack of trying (on the pitch at least) - he clearly works hard. He just doesn't have what made him a top player at this level anymore, and his wages make him almost impossible to shift.

The above just goes to show just what a freak of nature (in the best possible way) Ronaldo is. Still a top player 16 years on.

the fact that he still gets to wear #7 sickens me. It's a difficult shirt to wear, and has brought misfortune to those not worthy of wearing it. That would be the first step - give him #47 and let's consider who wears it next very carefully, before just handing it off. Just for gits and shiggles, Ole could give it to Mason to really wind him up.

I'd be happy with this. Zero confidence in the 'like a new signing' scenario, and shipping him out is healthy in terms of the impact on wage demands across the rest of the team. Instead of 'Sanchez gets that so I should have more' we reset the narrative to 'the club acknowledges it made a big mistake with Sanchez'.

Ronaldo is a physical specimen no doubt, but he also adapted his game some seasons ago. For us he'd often get on the ball and run at players. Over time at Madrid he's definitely reduced this aspect of his game. He's less entertaining to watch in terms of taking people on and running at defenders but he's gone to another level or two in terms of efficiency, goal scoring etc... He plays in moments more so now but has an unparalleled ability to pick the exact right moment.

Not only has that development of his game made him a ridiculous goal scorer, but it's probably added longevity to his game.

Unless his attitude is disruptive I would much rather have him available than not.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Why? He offers absolutely nothing except for blocking the progress of one of the youth players by taking a seat on the bench
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Aye, he's offered absolutely nothing since joining, f*ck him off.

No doubt he's adapted Berba. Giggs did the same.

What has disappointed me most about Sanchez isn't his effort but the wayward nature of he game. I suppose his explosiveness previously though masked those deficiencies by supplying 'moments' in games.
