The 29-year-old was a surprise absentee when the Red Devils, without their 2018 FIFA World Cup players, left for Los Angeles on Sunday for a five-match tour.

According to the BBC, the Chilean is currently banned from entering the US after accepting a 16-month suspended jail sentence for tax fraud in Spain in February.

Sanchez cannot step foot in America because, under federal law, no person found guilty of fraud can be granted a visa to enter the country, as per the English publication.

United are trying their best to sort things out with the US government, but this is taking longer than expected.
