Solskjaer gives Alexis Sanchez transfer update; talks ongoing with ‘some clubs’

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the club are in talks with several clubs over the potential sale of Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all summer, and still has time to get his transfer with the European window closing on September 2.

The Chile international played in a behind closed door friendly game against Sheffield United in midweek, and is getting back to full fitness after picking up an injury in the Copa America this summer.

“There are still talks with some clubs,” Solskjaer said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“But he played in that game and he played well, so as I’ve said he’s working hard and let’s see in September what’s going to happen.”

With the United manager speaking so openly about his future, it seems likely that Sanchez will leave the club this summer, after a disastrous spell since joining from Arsenal.

The 30-year-old missed training yesterday in order to sort out his visa ahead his upcoming international friendly against Argentina on September 6.

By the time that game comes around in the United States, we would be very surprised if he is still a Manchester United player.

According to BBC Sport, the Reds are in discussions with Inter Milan for the player, but so far can not agree on sharing his staggering £390,000 per-week wages in a potential loan with an option to buy deal.
