Why Alexis Sanchez missed Manchester United training
However, senior United sources have told the MEN Sanchez was given permission to address his visa before Chile’s September match with Argentina in the United States.
Chile face Argentina at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum next month and Sanchez encountered issues entering the United States for United’s pre-season tour last year.
Before Sanchez completed his transfer to United last year, he visited the immigration office in Liverpool to obtain a work permit.
In February 2018, Sanchez was handed a 16-month prison sentence for tax fraud that dated back to his time as a Barcelona player. The Chilean was accused of defrauding the Spanish Treasury of €1million and hiding the income of images rights between 2012 and 2013.
