Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Alexis Sanchez could still leave Manchester United before the close of the European summer transfer window.

The 30-year-old’s situation at Old Trafford has been something of a source of speculation in recent weeks due to his lack of playing time at Old Trafford last season.

Sanchez is currently recovering from an injury picked up during his involvement in the Copa America with Chile over the summer.

Solskjaer had previously insisted that Sanchez is part of his plans and that he is likely to stay at Old Trafford.

But the Manchester United boss now appears to have backtracked slightly on those comments after having been asked for an update on the former Arsenal star’s situation at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Wolves on Monday night, 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.”

Sanchez struggled for both form and fitness last season and has failed to live up to expectations since his move to Manchester United from Arsenal back in January 2018.

Manchester United will look to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term.
