In Monday night's Europa League quarter final win over Bayer Leverkusen Sanchez sustained an injury and tests conducted yesterday confirmed that the Chilean national team player has sustained a strain in his right hamstring.

Instead, it is the prestige of a European trophy and prize money that is driving the ambitions of the semi-finalists despite the eery atmosphere with all games behind closed doors in northern Germany.

With the Europa League down to the final four, it's anybody's guess which boss will etch their name into the history books as a Europa League-winning manager.


The 24 year-old is wanted by other clubs and he could leave.

Shakhtar also took advantage when they became only the second Ukrainian club to ever win a European trophy by beating Werder Bremen in 2009.

The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has made Pereira a fringe player once again and he has played just 62 minutes of football since the restart, failing to even make the bench for United's final three Premier League games of the season.

But they will hope to sign off with another victory in the competition Sevilla call their own.

It has been suggested that he could return to Valencia, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell in 2017/18.
