Sunk cost of Sanchez holding Man United back

As well as the introduction of five times as many search lanes for United fans as normal at the Nou Camp following dialogue between United and the Manchester United Supporters' Trust (MUST), there will be an increased number of United staff as well as officials from the FA and Uefa on the ground.

The 30-year-old Chilean forward, who scored 47 goals in 141 appearances for Barcelona from 2011-14, has been absent for six weeks due to a knee injury.

Manchester United is one of the clubs linked with the player and had a chance to watch him up close last week during their Champions League clash.

"We had (Barcelona) flustered at times here as well".

"We tried to Google that".

Manchester United had lost 2-0 in the first leg against Paris Saint-Germain but were able to win 3-1 at the Parc des Princes, advancing to the last eight as a result, and they will look to repeat that feat on Tuesday night, having lost 1-0 to their Catalan opponents in the first leg. We will try to make sure they don't score.

Marcus Rashford tried restoring parity for the Red Devils nearly immediately after conceding their first goal but his efforts was intercepted by the visitors defenders.

Chelsea are in dire need of strengthening in the summer, given the Blues are aware that we will have to go through a period without signing players. I can not wait to get going because it's the biggest stage.

The same article states that Solskjaer is already working with the club's recruitment team to identify players that could improve his squad this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been boosted by the return of Matic as the Serbian global has travelled to Spain after recovering from an illness that's kept him out of Man Utd's last three matches. "Let's hope Alexis, when he's on the pitch, he can be happy with his performance".

"He's been injured, he's not had a fantastic season so far and let's hope he can end the season great".

Of the 70 previous occasions a side has won a Champions League knockout tie first leg away from home, just four have been eliminated (6%).

Sanchez was handed a contract worth 500,000-a-week, but has proved to be one of the most expensive failures in the club's history.

His wages have caused a split in the United dressing room and Solskjaer admits if Sanchez gets some game time in the Nou Camp he needs to deliver the goods.

Similarly United's chance of winning the Champions League this season has reduced to around 1%.
