Sanchez granted US entry for Manchester United's pre-season games

The Chilean had previously been denied entry due to an ‘administrative issue’.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ IS set to join Manchester United’s pre-season tour of the United States after the club confirmed the Chile forward’s visa issue has been resolved.

Sanchez was absent from United’s flight to Los Angeles on Sunday due to what the Premier League side said was an “administrative issue”.

It later emerged American authorities hadn’t granted Sanchez a visa, reportedly because the former Arsenal star accepted a 16-month suspended prison sentence in Spain over a tax issue.

Sanchez ‘should be available soon to link up with his colleagues following the first match of the trip against Club America in Arizona,” said a club statement this afternoon.

Sanchez posted a picture on Instagram today, above, accompanied by the caption: “The last training in Manchester, soon” followed by a picture of the US flag.

United play the first match of their tour against Club America in Phoenix tonight, before taking on San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

Mourinho’s men are also scheduled to face AC Milan, Liverpool and Real Madrid before opening their Premier League campaign against Leicester on August 10.
