Alexis Sanchez was back in Manchester on Thursday night, having been forced to miss the day's training session because he had to sort out his U.S. visa.

The Chilean forward had to make a last minute trip to London to sort out issues over his visa ahead of Chile's international friendlies in the USA next month.

​Mirror report that Sanchez was given permission to skip the session by senior United officials and he soon arrived back in Manchester.

Sanchez was seen arriving back at Wilmslow Train Station in Cheshire on Thursday night, and will look to join his team-mates for training on Friday ahead of their Premier League encounter with Crystal Palace . 

However, the former Arsenal man is not expected to feature for United due to his ongoing ​transfer discussions with ​Inter Milan.

​After initially looking positive and backing Sanchez to regain his top form, ​Manchester United manager Solskjaer appeared to throw in the towel and open the gates for an exit for the Chilean striker.

Asked about Sanchez's future after Monday's 1-1 draw at Wolves , Solskjaer said, "Well, there's still a couple of weeks left of the transfer window and there is a chance... ​some clubs have shown interest in Alexis, so we'll see what happens. Can't update you more than that."
