Alexis Sanchez Manchester United

Alexis Sanchez could be leaving Old Trafford, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after his side fell to a draw at Wolverhampton Wolves.

During Friday’s press conference Solskjaer appeared to end talk of Sanchez leaving, despite the Chilean failing to achieve anywhere near his best since joining from Arsenal in January 2018.

Solskjaer spoke about his belief that Sanchez, 30, would come good at United – but just days later the manager opened the door to an exit by the Premier League’s highest-paid player.

Inter Milan are interested in bringing the forward to San Siro, having already completed a move for United striker Romelu Lukaku earlier in the summer.

Asked about Sanchez’s future after Monday’s 1-1 draw at Wolves, Solskjaer said: “Well, there’s still a couple of weeks left of the transfer window and there is a chance… some clubs have shown interest in Alexis, so we’ll see what happens.

“Can’t update you more than that.”

It comes in direct contrast to his recent quotes on Sanchez, when he insisted the Chilean “might end up playing a lot more games than you expect,” and that “we expect him to come good at this club, he’s quality.”

Clearly he meant Inter.
