According to media reports, the British side is seeking a way to prevent Sanchez from securing a permanent contract with the Italian or any other club, thus enabling chances for the prominent football player to revive his apparently declining career with the Red Devils.

Sanchez is expected to travel with the Reds on their preseason tour, as the team will try to integrate the Chilean forward into their main roster, according to The Daily Mail.

Sanchez joined Manchester United two years ago in a deal that saw Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, 31, move to Arsenal. The swap reportedly allowed Sanchez to earn £500,000-a-week ($653,000).
