Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Friday, dismissed media reports claiming that Striker Alexis Sanchez was keen on leaving the Premier League club before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.
Sanchez was not included in Man United’s squad for their opening Premier League win against Chelsea last weekend, “which led to speculation that the Chilean forward was seeking a move away from the Old Trafford side before the European window shuts next month.
“Alexis is such a professional. He comes in working every single day, really hard. He wants to be part of this,” Solskjaer was quoted by NAN as telling reporters ahead of Monday’s league trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
“These stories, that he’s been put in the reserves… of course he hasn’t. He’s part of our squad and he’s a very good player.
“He’s a few weeks behind the rest but he’s very close to being part of it.
“We don’t have the biggest forward line 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.”
Man United failed to beat Wolves in three matches in all competitions last season and Solskjaer is wary of the threat of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side that finished a remarkable seventh in their first season back in the top flight.
“They were tough games and Wolves are a hard team to break down,” Solskjaer added.
“(They) defend deep, don’t give you a lot of spaces, they can counter-attack and (their) set pieces are always dangerous.
“We’ve been looking at the games last season to see if there’s anything different to do this time.
“But our form, our attitude and the mood after the win is great so we go into the game confident.”
