Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Alexis Sanchez could leave Manchester United in the coming weeks, with Inter Milan among the clubs showing interest in the forward.

Having failed to get anywhere near his best since joining from Arsenal in January 2018, the United manager appeared to end any talk of the Chilean leaving during Friday’s press conference.

Solskjaer spoke about his belief that Sanchez would come good at United – but three days on the Norwegian opened the door to the Premier League’s highest-paid player making an exit.

PA understands Inter are interested in bringing the forward to San Siro, having already completed a move for United striker Romelu Lukaku earlier in the summer.

Asked about Sanchez’s future after Monday’s 1-1 draw at Wolves, Solskjaer said: “Well, there’s still a couple of weeks left of the transfer window and there is a chance… some clubs have shown interest in Alexis, so we’ll see what happens.

“Can’t update you more than that.”
