‘He’s Leaving’ ‘Adios’ ‘Keep Him Until January At Least’ United Fans On Twitter React As Solskjaer Provides Update On Star’s Future

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club remain in talks with a number of teams over the departure of Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean international played in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sheffield United earlier this week to build up his fitness, and while Solskjaer praised his performance during the match, he has hinted that the forward could leave Old Trafford before the end of the month:

“There are still talks with some clubs. But he played in that game and he played well, so as I’ve said he’s working hard and let’s see in September what’s going to happen.”

Some supporters on Twitter believe it is inevitable that Sanchez will depart:

While other fans think that the 30-year-old should stay at the club for another six months:

Solskjaer’s comments suggest that Sanchez will leave if a club come up with a good enough offer. The Chilean’s salary will likely be a major stumbling block, and if an initial loan move is agreed, it is almost guaranteed that United will have to subsidise at least half of his wages.

Inter Milan appear to be the likeliest destination at the moment, but another team could emerge to take the ex-Arsenal player off the club’s hands.
