Manchester United have given Alexis Sanchez permission to return to Chile to continue rehabilitation for his hamstring injury , Sky Sports reports .
Sanchez, 29 , who has only started seven games for United this season , is understood to be having treatment with members of the Chilean national team ’ s medical staff .

The forward flew into Santiago earlier this week and , according to United boss Jose Mourinho, is set to be out of action until the New Year after sustaining an “ aggressive ” hamstring injury in training last week .

Speaking on Friday, Mourinho said , “ No scans yet but the player is experienced , the player knows what the injury is . And also , from the top of my experience , the painful scream , and the way the injury happened , I know that it is going to be for a long time .

“ It is not a little muscular injury that , in one week or 10 days , the player is ready . For me and also Alexis , the feeling before the scans is that the grade is different than the ( Victor ) Lindelof one , and the Lindelof one was not an easy one . So , I think Alexis has what I used to call an aggressive muscular injury . ”

Before picking up the injury in training , Sanchez had been dropped from Mourinho’ s matchday squad for their 1 – 0 Champions League win over Young Boys at Old Trafford .
