Sanchez returns to Manchester after missing training.

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 out-of-favour Manchester United 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.

It is understood Sanchez was given permission to skip the session by senior United officials and he soon arrived back in Manchester.

The Chilean 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.
