- Alexis Sanchez acquires a new five-bedroom house worth £2.5m
- The Manchester United ace was denied visa into the United States
- The 29-year-old attacker made a January move from Arsenal to Old Trafford
Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez has bought a new £2.5m house in cash - complete with plenty of room for his dogs Atom and Humber to run around in.
The 29-year-old has been training alone at Carrington after missing United's flight to their pre-season tour in the United States due to visa problems.
But Sanchez has bought the site in Cheshire, which has been under construction, with no finished photos available.
The five-bedroom home features a master bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe, balcony and massive bathroom.
And then there are four guest bedrooms, each en-suite upstairs, while downstairs is a games room, a living room, a dining room, study, a playroom, kitchen diner and a utility room. There is also a two-car garage and considerable garden.
The Chilean international is a well-known dog lover and has an Instagram account for his two golden retrievers.
And his actress and model girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez will live happily in the massive abode, despite the fact that she prefers the sunshine to rainy Lancashire.
Sanchez was embarrassingly denied a visa to enter the United States for after being found guilty of defrauding the Spanish government in February during his time at Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Alexis Sanchez was denied visa to gain entry into the United States and join his club for their preseason tour.
The 29-year-old joined the Red Devils from Arsenal during the winter transfer season - a deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates Stadium in January.
