Solskjaer hints at Alexis Sanchez return

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has bemoaned the “difficult” nature of the January transfer window and hinted at a possible Manchester United return for Alexis Sanchez.

Solskjaer could not provide an update on the pursuit of Sporting midfielder Bruno Fernandes, and while there is still a chance the Portugal international can arrive at Old Trafford with a deal still to be done within the two clubs, United have less time to complete a move before Friday’s deadline.

United remain some way apart on what they are willing to pay and what Sporting want for the 27-year-old - but Old Trafford chiefs are keen not to repeat the mistakes of previous windows and will not panic buy, fuelling a chance they will not make a signing before Friday’s deadline.

“I haven’t got any updates for you on transfers,” Solskjaer said. “I haven’t got anything to say now. If there is something out there, then the club are pursuing that and looking at it. It is difficult this window - it’s always been. I can’t remember how many good deals that we’ve brought in January.”

“Henrik (Larsson)... Nemanja (Vidic) and Patrice (Evra) - they were two good ones. It’s hard, it’s very hard because the clubs don’t want to lose their best players.”

Two years ago United made a major swoop in January by signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, but the Chile forward struggled at Old Trafford, scoring just five goals in 45 appearances before joining Inter Milan on loan last summer.

Despite allowing him to leave the club, Solskjaer suggested the former Barcelona forward could still make a success of his United career when his loan to Serie A finishes at the end of the season.

“Alexis will come back in the summer and prove you all wrong,” Solskjaer said following a question from the media.
