Alexis Sanchez revealed he wanted to leave after one training session following his move from Arsenal in 2018.

The Chilean endured a nightmare spell at Old Trafford, despite the Red Devils paying him around £560,000-a-week. He scored just five goals in 45 matches before moving to Inter Milan on loan for the 2019-20 season, a move which he made permanent last summer. 

And the 31-year-old, who confirmed an Manchester City fell through before he joined United, revealed that he asked to move back to former club Arsenal after just one day of training under Jose Mourinho.

'I ended up signing without much information about what was happening in the move. The first days that I was with my colleagues, sometimes there are things that you do not realize until you arrive. 

The first training I had I realized many things. home and I told my representative: 'Can't the contract be terminated to return to Arsenal?'
