Alexis Sanchez

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Manchester United are in talks with “some clubs” over a potential exit for Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile international, who arrived at Old Trafford in January 2018 from Arsenal, has scored only three Premier League goals for United and has not completed a full 90 minutes for his club since the opening game of last season.

Sanchez featured for United in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sheffield United at Carrington on Tuesday and the 30-year-old could leave, with the transfer window open until September 2 in Europe.

The forward’s agent has held talks with the Premier League club on behalf of Inter Milan regarding a potential loan deal for the forward.

“There are still talks with some clubs,” Solskjaer said, ahead of United’s Premier League meeting against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.

“But he played in that game [against Sheffield United] and he played well. As I have said he is working well.

“Let’s see in September what is going to happen.”

Solskjaer backed Sanchez to play “a lot of games” for his side this season, despite failing to have an impact since his arrival, at last week’s pre-match news conference.

United have Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as attacking options at the club.
