Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that underperforming forward, Alexis Sanchez, is in talks with other clubs, as transfer speculations continue to emerge.

The Chilean star has struggled to make an impact at United since his move in January 2018, a deal that involved Henrikh Mhkitaryan moving in the opposite direction.

The 30-year-old has recorded just 5 goals in over 40 appearances for the English giant as he struggled with inconsistency and injuries for most of his one-and-a-half year at the Old Trafford and has not made a single appearance for the Reds since the end of the last season.

Inter Milan has been mooted as a final destination for the former Arsenal and Barcelona man, with reports claiming the Nezzazzuri are prepared to take the player on loan.

While nothing has come out of the reported talks between both the clubs, with Sanchez’s exorbitant wages proving to be a hurdle, United’s boss, Solskjaer admitted that the player might still change clubs before the closure of the European transfer window.

The Norwegian has previously hinted that Sanchez is going to play a part in the Reds’ 2019/2020 campaign, claiming that the Copa America winner will “come good.”

He said: “Alexis is such a professional and he comes in working every single day really hard and wants to be a part of this.”

“We don’t have the biggest forward line in numbers so Alexis might end up playing a lot more games than you expect.”

“We expect him to come good at this club, he’s quality.”

But in a recent press conference, the manager refused to confirm whether Alexis Sanchez will stay on at the club or will leave.

“There are still talks with some clubs, but he’s working hard and let’s see in September what is going to happen,” said Solskjaer.

Sanchez is currently looking to step up his recovery from an injury he suffered at the 2019 Copa America edition last July.

Manchester United has already started the season in satisfactory form without Sanchez, thrashing Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford in their first Premier League match of the season and following it up with a hard-fought draw at Molineux.

Ole’s men next play Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday, and the Red Devils would be looking to put up a good display in front of their supporters.
