Ahead of their English Premier League clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a transfer and fitness update on Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez is yet to feature for United since their 1-1 draw at Huddersfield in the penultimate game of last season and has been linked with a move away from the club. The 30-year-old signed from Arsenal in January 2018 and has managed just five goals in 45 appearances, failing to justify his exorbitant salary of £500,000-a-week.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Wolves clash, Solskjaer issued Sanchez' transfer declaration, "Alexis is such a professional and he comes in working every single day really hard and wants to be a part of this. It’s these stories he’s been put in the reserves, of course, he hasn’t, he’s had three weeks now.
"He’s a few weeks behind the rest but close to being ready. Alexis we don’t have the biggest forward line in numbers so Alexis might end up playing a lot more games than you expect, we expect him to come good at this club, he’s quality."
United face Wolves on Monday 19th August in a 10 PM (EAT) kick-off.
