Barcelona will not offer Alexis Sanchez the chance to end his Manchester United nightmare, according to a report in Spain.

Sanchez has struggled for form since he arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal last January, scoring just five goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.

Jose Mourinho's departure in December was seen as an opportunity for the Chilean to rejuvenate his United career. But Sanchez has started only five of United's 18 games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took temporary charge.

And it seems that the Norwegian, who is expected to be given the job permanently, does not see Sanchez in his future plans.

It had been reported that United would offer the forward to Barca in a loan deal as they attempt to get his mammoth salary off the club's wage bill.

However, according to Barcelona-based daily Mundo Deportivo , the Catalan club have no interest in re-signing their former player.
