French champions Paris Saint-Germain are understood to have no ambition of acquiring the services of Alexis Sanchez when the transfer window reopens in a couple of months’ time.
A recent report suggested that the Chilean could part ways with the Old Trafford outfit in the New Year with Les Parisiens among the prime candidates to end his nightmare spell with United.
However, according to The Independent, that does not seem the case anymore with the reigning Ligue 1 champions reluctant to make a move for the attacker, who is approaching his 30s and struggling for form.
The Capital outfit were among the front-runners to land Sanchez during the summer of 2017 but back then, the 29-year-old was leaning towards a potential move to Manchester City which never materialised in the end.
At the start of 2018, Sanchez was once more fancied to make the switch to the Citizens but in a surprise change of events, he made the switch to cross-town rivals Manchester United, who offered Henrikh Mkhitaryan in exchange to the Gunners.
Sanchez has since endured a tough run of form with just four goals coming from 30 appearances for the Red Devils but judging by the current state of affairs, he appears likely to stay put beyond the winter transfer window.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain have formed one of Europe’s deadliest attacks with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe partnering Edinson Cavani upfront and they have dominated the proceedings in Ligue 1 this term with a perfect start which sees them 13 points ahead.
Still, they have yet to make progress in terms of the Champions League and there remains the optimism that they can approach the semi-final phase for the first time since the modern competition was introduced.
Paris Saint-Germain are presently topping the Champions League group stage ahead of Liverpool on goal difference and the next two games against the Reds and Napoli could make or break their prospects of reaching the round of 16 stage.
