'The sooner they got rid of him the better' - Scholes happy to see Sanchez leave Man Utd to join Inter

Alexis Sanchez Paul Scholes

Paul Scholes has said he's happy to see Alexis Sanchez leave Manchester United after the Chilean's permanent move to Inter was confirmed by both clubs on Wednesday.

Sanchez has been on loan with Inter this term,scoring four goals across 29 appearances. That move followed a difficult season and a half with United, where Sanchez scored just five goals in 45 appearances and failed to lock down a regular place in the line-up.

That spell at Old Trafford has led clublegendScholes to declare himself happy to see the back of Sanchez, saying his signing was one of many questionable United moves in recent seasons.

"The sooner they got rid of him the better," Scholes said on BT Sport."He was really poor for Man Utd. When Sir Alex Fergusonleft, it was just part of a four or five year spell where the recruitment was abysmal to say the least and he was just a part of that."

Sanchez moved to Man Utd in January 2018 after establishing himself as one of the Premier League's top players at Arsenal, but he was unable to replicate that form at Old Trafford.

Scholes is hopeful that poor signings will be a thing of the past underSolskjaer, who has recently done well in the transfer market by landing Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Bruno Fernandes.

"He looked a very good player at Arsenal, his previous club at Barcelona as well, but for some reason at Man Utditdidn'twork," Scholes said of Sanchez."I'mjust grateful Ole's come in now to Man Utdand the recruitment looks to really be going in the right direction.

"Hopefully they won't make a mistake like a Sanchezmistake that's been made over the last four or five years."

Another former Man Utd midfielder, Owen Hargreaves, agreed that the Sanchez that appeared at Old Trafford was a shadow of the player who starred in north London.

"Everybody was delighted when Manchester United signed him but the player they had at Arsenal never showed up at ManchesterUnited, so it didn't work out," Hargreaves said.
