Alexis Sanchez Wants To Leave Man United Before European Transfer Deadline

Alexis Sanchez Wants To Leave Man United Before European Transfer Deadline

Manchester United might have got off to a flying start in the Premier League, but they still have many issues to resolve from within the team.

Much has been said of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's managerial style ever since he took over the reins of Manchester United.

Sanchez, who has struggled with injuries since his January 2018 move from Arsenal, didn't feature in the Red Devils' preseason after picking up a hamstring injury while on worldwide duty during the Copa America.

He has brought in players during the summer transfer window, including £80 million ($97m) defender Harry Maguire, and is placing greater emphasis on youth and home-grown talent. There are still a few days until we play.

"Alexis is such a professional and he comes in working every single day really hard and he wants to be a part of this", he said, as per The Guardian.

The 31-year-old has made just 45 appearances, scoring five goals in over 18 months since moving to the Theatre of Dreams.

"It's these stories again that he's been put in the reserves and all this - of course he hasn't".

"United are now faced with the prospect of subsidising Sanchez's salary to help facilitate a deal that would see him leave the club".

According to Sky Sports, Solskjaer said: "Well we hope so, I know physical stats are not a lot to go from but there is a shift from this first league game and the Chelsea match three games from the end of last season".

"We've had a behind closed doors game, and he's training, he's doing a little bit of extras, he'll be gradually integrated into more and more playing time, but we'll have more behind closed doors games".

United didn't suffer any fresh injury concerns following their 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford last weekend and Solskjaer says they've enjoyed a "good week" on the training pitches this week.

That quality will be needed on Monday, when United will look to atone for last season's Molineux defeats in the FA Cup and Premier League. Sanchez's regular playing time came under former boss Jose Mourinho, while Solskjaer hasn't used him as frequently since taking over.
