Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has flown out to Los Angeles to join his team-mates on their pre-season tour of the United States.
Alexis Sanchez missed the opening game of the tour – a 1-1 draw with Mexican side Club America in Pheonix – after initially being denied a US visa.
The issue has now been resolved and manager Jose Mourinho is keen for Sanchez to play in United’s next game against San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday
“There’s no [Romelu] Lukaku or [Marcus] Rashford here and probably not even for the start of the Premier League, so it’s about when Alexis lands and when he lands, he has to play,” Mourinho said.
“He trained with us for five days before we departed to Los Angeles and we left one fitness coach behind with him to keep training with him. Of course, it’s individual training but when he arrives, he has to play”
