Barcelona v Manchester United

Pogba confident of a Catalonia comeback Sunk cost of Sanchez holding Man United back

Barcelona will be at full strength as they welcome Manchester United to the Nou Camp for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Tuesday.

The return of the club's highest earner from a six-week injury layoff to make the voyage to Catalonia in such circumstances should be a source of inspiration.

The Brazil international's representatives Kia Joorabchian and Giuliano Bertolucci have scheduled an appointment with the sporting leaders of the La Liga winners after their Champions League clash against Manchester United.

Sanchez signed reportedly the most lucrative contract in Premier League history when joining from Arsenal last January, earning close to £400,000 (RM2.15 million) a week plus a series of bonuses.

He said the Chile global, likely to have to settle for a place on the bench, would "have a point to prove" as he returns to his former club on the back of disappointing United campaign that has brought just two goals in 23 appearances. "He is one of United's most important players and for me tomorrow, it's always nice to have someone who you play against who is of the highest level". We have to defend well but we have to have that little bit of extra to score goals.

By contrast, a hard-running style and years of grind for club and country seem to have burned Sanchez out having just turned 30 in December.

Marcus Rashford's last-gasp penalty sealed a memorable 3-1 victory at the Parc des Princes last month, although the United striker is wary of putting too much emphasis on that result.

"We will try to fight and win the game". I am sure he wants to prove a point and prove point for us as well.

He, for one, isn't lacking that belief at the ground where he scored his greatest goal, 20 years ago.

Instead, it is Sanchez they would love to ship out if a buyer can be found to fund his wages.

However, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may turn to him after his side failed to muster a shot on target in the 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in last week's first leg.

United also had too little of the possession to seriously damage Barcelona and Solskjaer acknowledged they can not afford that to happen again.
