Former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is regretting his switch to Manchester United, according to the Mirror.
The Chilean international moved to Old Trafford in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan last January. However, he has failed to perform since departing the Gunners and was left out of the matchday squad in the 3-1 defeat to West Ham at the weekend.
Arsenal fans showed their former player no sympathy on Twitter:

I don't know if this is true, but it's certainly believable.

Others were a bit more cynical thinking his £500,000 a week salary at United may ease the frustration he is experiencing:
The man is on half million pounds a week, doubt be regrets it TOO much..

The stats don’t lie. Since moving to United, Sanchez’s goal return has nosedived. With the Gunners, he averaged a goal every two games, but he is getting a goal on average, once in every 7.5 games for the Red Devils.
Sanchez has looked a subdued figure and a shadow of his former self at Old Trafford, but Arsenal supporters won’t be minding that one bit.
