Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to let Alexis Sanchez leave Manchester United on loan.

The Norwegian tactician suffered his first domestic defeat last weekend, as his side was beaten by Arsenal in a crucial Top 4 encounter.

The Red Devils left Emirates with their heads held high nonetheless, as they clearly created the better chances throughout the game, and would have returned home with all three points had their finishing been clinical.

In spite of the defeat, the improvement in the Mancunians’ overall performance was quite evident, which just goes on to show how much the players have developed under the interim gaffer.

While a majority of the squad is back to its best, one player whose displays remain unsatisfactory, is none other than Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean international struggled heavily under former boss Jose Mourinho, and his form continues to be subpar at the moment. In fact, in the 17 Premier League appearances he has made so far this season, the forward has only managed to bag one goal.

A lack of improvement in his performances has convinced Solskjaer to let go of the former Barcelona superstar come summer. However, keeping in mind the humongous wages that the player commands, Ole is aware that the departure is unlikely to be a permanent one.

Therefore, according to The Sun, the Reds are willing to let go of Sanchez on loan – a move wherein they may have to subsidise his wages to make his salary affordable for interested parties.

Their only other alternative would be to hope for a mega-rich club from the Chinese Super League to swoop in for the 30-year-old, and sign him on a permanent basis.
