Manchester United Star Alexis Sanchez Trains Alone At Carrington After Being Denied Entry To The US For Pre-Season Tour

Alexis Sanchez is training alone after he was denied entry to the US with his Manchester United team-mates.

As the Red Devils get ready for their tour of America, Sanchez took to the pitches at their Carrington training complex to prepare for the season.

It was certainly a far cry from sunny California where boss Jose Mourinho and his squad will be spending the next few days.

The Chilean ace ran into visa issues relating to when he was found guilty of defrauding the Spanish government in February during his time at Barcelona.

The forward avoided a jail term by paying £890,000 in tax PLUS interest.

He accepted a a 16-month suspended jail sentence, but is now relying on a waiver if he is to jet out to crash the party over the Atlantic.

But he seemed in good spirits at United’s training facility and uploaded a clip post-workout to his Instagram feed.

No doubt disciplinarian Mourinho will be pleased to see his star striker not resting on his laurels despite being out of sight but most certainly not out of mind.

SunSport reported earlier today how United started their pre-season training with a depleted squad as Mourinho put his stars to work.

The side made the 5,200-mile trip to California after the World Cup final on Sunday.

And they have been getting into the swing of things at the plush University of California, Los Angeles campus under the West Coast sunshine.

Luke Shaw, Andreas Pereira, Antonio Valencia, Anthony Martial and Chris Smalling all performed basic warm-up drills to shake out the long flight.

Mourinho has enjoyed taking his teams out to UCLA for their training in the past, with the American university boasting world class sporting facilities and an ideal climate – as well as being a popular workout spot for Hollywood celebrities.

But United are getting down to serious business, starting on Friday with friendlies against Club America, San Jose Earthquakes, AC Milan, Liverpool and Real Madrid planned.
