Ole Gunnar Solskajer today confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will return to Manchester United in the summer.

Look away United fans, this may be your biggest signing this summer. Red Devils manager Solskjaer told the press today that Alexis Sanchez will return to the club this summer.

Solskjaer took his seat and started to answer questions at his pre-game press conference. As he prepared for Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester City many were hoping for a positive winter transfer window update.

No such luck!

According to the club’s official website manutd.com, Solskjaer was giving little away. All he really did was bemoan the difficulties of signing quality players in the January window.

He said:

“We’ve got players here that we’re working hard to get back as well and if there is something out there then the club is pursuing that and it’s difficult.”

“I can’t remember how many good ones we’ve brought in and were good deals in January.”

“Henrik [Larsson] was good, Nemanja [Vidic] and Patrice [Evra]… it’s hard, very hard, the clubs don’t want to lose their best players.”

As he alluded to the fact that the club was more likely to make changes in the summer. However, then came the news probably no United fan wanted to hear.

He added:

“Alexis will come back in the summer and will prove youse all wrong.”

Sanchez played 45 games for United in 18 months and managed a paultry five goals.

He has not faired much better on loan at Inter Milan. It may be a case of that United have no choice but to take him back in June.

It appears the fans are not happy at all!
