Sanchez resolves visa issue, travels to US for United tour

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Alexis Sanchez has resolved his visa issues and can travel to the United States to join up with the Manchester United squad for its preseason tour.

The Chile forward had to stay in Manchester as the rest of the squad headed across the Atlantic last weekend, because of what the club said was a "personal administrative issue." That turned out to be a problem with his visa, with Sanchez having accepted a 16-month suspended prison sentence in Spain this year over a tax issue.

Sanchez posted a picture of himself on Instagram on Thursday, accompanied by the caption: "The last training in Manchester, soon" followed by a picture of the U.S. flag.
