The French champions are expected to lose one of Neymar or Kylian Mbappe next summer, and would require a whiz substitution.
An Old Trafford source stated: « There has been a few whispers that PSG need to take Alexis off of the club next summer.
“It’s no secret he has struggled and not lived up to the expectations. He isn’t getting any more youthful and it may never work for him.
“There was interest before the club signed him but he preferred staying in England at the time. That may have changed at this point.
« One of their best stars could go and it’s not past the domains of plausibility that an arrangement could be struck between the two clubs. »
Sanchez has been unwell at Manchester United, scoring just three goals in 19 Premier League appearances.
He joined them from the Gunners last summer as part of a deal which took Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the Emirates.
