And he showed United fans he is not hitting the burgers and chips but scaling mountains in the off-season.

Sanchez posted two photos to his 9.3 million Instagram followers of himself with dogs Atom and Humber.

The trio were in Tocopilla in the northern region of Antofagasta.

One of the Labradors wears a baseball cap in the baking sunshine while the other appears to have a T-shirt on its head.

Sanchez wrote alongside the images: "Training."

Some fans enjoyed ribbing Sanchez for not being in Russia.

One commented on the photos: "Enjoying the World Cup? Oh wait! Chile not in it. LOSER!"

Another quipped sarcastically: "Good luck in World Cup."
