The season may not have started yet but Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has already picked up his first yellow.
The Chilean international returned to his car in Wilmslow after taking a train from London, only to discover that a parking warden had paid it a visit.
The 30-year-old was handed a £60 parking ticket at the same time as his team-mates flew back from Norway after their pre-season victory over Kristiansund.

Sanchez, who drives a Bentley Betayga worth £160,000, was left behind by United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his exploits at Copa America.
His Chile side reached the semi-finals of the competition, although it wasn’t without cost for Sanchez, who picked up a hamstring strain.
United hope the forward will be back in time for the start of the new season, with the Red Devils set to face Chelsea on Sunday August 11.
They will be hoping to see something close to the form that first merited Sanchez’s big-money move from Arsenal to Old Trafford back in January 2018.
The former Barcelona player scored just one goal from 20 Premier League appearances last term, a far-cry from his best campaign with the Gunners, where he hit 30 from 51 in all competitions.
