Alexis Sanchez will be a Manchester United player when the January transfer window closes, according to Jose Mourinho.
Sanchez has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain after struggling for form at Old Trafford.
Red Devils boss Mourinho has dropped the Chilean against Chelsea and Manchester City this season.
And with Anthony Martial scoring six goals in his last seven appearances, Sanchez faces a difficult task regaining a starting place.
But Mourinho squashed rumours of the 29-year-old leaving the club.
“I don’t think so,” the Portuguese coach said. “Because he never told me that he wants to leave or isn’t happy to stay.
“But I repeat, that is a personal thing related to my philosophy.
“He is improving like the team is improving and when he plays he is giving us his personality, his desire to play and to produce for the team and trying to adapt to how we play and vice versa, can he do better?
“I think we can all do better. I can do better and he can do better and all the other players can also do better.”
Sanchez, whose contract runs out in 2022, has scored just four goals since moving to United 10 months ago.
