Man Utd still hoping to sell Alexis Sanchez despite Solskjaer suggestions he could stay

Manchester United are still hoping to sell Alexis Sanchez despite recent suggestions from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the forward could have a future at the club.

Sanchez is currently on a season-long loan deal at Inter Milan after falling out-of-favour at Manchester United, the forward having endured a disappointing spell at the club following his highly-anticipated move from Arsenal in January 2018.

He would move to Manchester in a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head to north London, though the Chilean would struggle to replicate the form which saw him regarded as one of the division’s finest players, scoring just three league goals in 18 months at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old was shipped out on loan to Inter Milan during the summer but has again struggled for both form and fitness during his spell at the San Siro, scoring just once for the Italian side who currently sit top of Serie A on goal difference.

Despite his struggles during his time in Manchester, however, Solskjaer suggested recently that Sanchez could still have a future at the club, the United boss backing the forward to prove his doubters wrong upon his return.

However, the Manchester Evening News are reporting that an exit is still likely for Sanchez this summer, the Red Devils looking for potential buyers as they bid to offload the Chilean at the end of the season.

Inter are not believed to have a purchase option in their temporary agreement for Sanchez, who provided an assist during the club’s 4-2 Milan derby victory on Sunday, though could be interested in a permanent switch should the on-loan star rediscover his best form following three months out with an ankle injury.
