Sanchez enjoyed three impressive seasons at Arsenal before joining the Red Devils in January 2018 in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan. United fans were buoyed by Sanchez’s arrival at Old Trafford but the Chile international has failed to adapt to his new surroundings, scoring just five goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.
Both Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer have been left frustrated by Sanchez’s lack of progress at the club and the latter is now ready to sell the 30-year-old.
It is claimed Solskjaer, who is set to oversee a major summer overhaul, does not see Sanchez as part of his plans, with the club now hoping to attract a buyer at around £50m. United also believe Sanchez’s exit could pave the way for David De Gea to sign a contract extension at the Theatre of Dreams.
Sanchez’s hopes of saving his Manchester United career were dealt a blow last month after he suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury. But the former Gunner has insisted he wants to ‘bring joy’ to United fans and help the Red Devils win silverware in the years ahead.
He said last month: ‘I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability. ‘United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters.
‘Obviously, I want to make the United fans really happy. I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.
