According to reports in Chile, Sanchez has had contact from Atleti over a potential summer switch complete with £500,000-a-week wages.

Inter Milan and Juventus are two clubs also interested in the former Barcelona and Arsenal star.

Simeone is well known for his tough love getting the best out of under-performing players, with the likes of Diego Costa and Fernando Torres prime examples.

Sanchez has been one of the worst signings in Premier League history after switching from Arsenal to United and scoring just three goals in the league.

SIMEONE’S TOUGH LOVE

And he had two major injury spells last season before returning for the last five games, then missing the final day defeat to Cardiff.

Sanchez will attempt to put his woes behind him at the Copa America as they face Japan, Ecuador and Uruguay in Group C, after their pre-tournament friendly against Haiti.

Welsh winger Daniel James is set to have a medical at United and complete his £15million switch from Swansea today.

SunSport can exclusively reveal he has been given permission to leave Ryan Giggs’ squad, just two weeks after mourning the death of his father.

And Paris Saint-Germain are set to make a bid for David de Gea after his contract talks at Old Trafford hit the buffers.
