Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides update on Alexis Sanchez Man Utd future

Date published: Friday 23rd August 2019 11:08

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Alexis Sanchez is in talks with a number of clubs over a potential departure from Old Trafford.

Sanchez, whose only action so far this season came in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sheffield United on Tuesday, has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan.

One previous report claimed United and their Serie A counterparts were in complex discussions over the structure of a possible loan move and, speaking to reporters at a press conference, Solskjaer confirmed that talks are going ahead with some clubs.

“There are still talks with some clubs,” the manager said. “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.”

Elsewhere during the press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace, Solskjaer confirmed that Paul Pogba will continue to take penalties following his missed spot-kick against Wolves on Monday night.

Pogba received racial abuse on Twitter following Monday’s game, but Solskjaer said that the Frenchman is “stronger” following the incidents.

“Paul’s fine, Paul’s a strong character and it makes him stronger,” the manager added. “When you speak to him he’s fine and I just cannot believe we’re still sitting here in 2019 talking about these instances.

“Social media is a place where people can hide behind fake identifies, it’s not down to me to change it but there are so many Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s on Twitter.

“I know it’s not me and we’ve got to do something about it and the authorities have got to do something about it, you feel sorry for them [the abusers], they must have problems themselves.”

United and Palace produced a 0-0 draw in last season’s meeting between the sides at Old Trafford.
