Alexis Sanchez can thrive under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Published

on

Alexis Sanchez has come under the hammer of fans of Manchester United for his below par performances but he deserves another chance to prove his mettle next season under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjear. The Norwegian manager led the Red Devils to a sixth place finish in the League but he’s expected to do better next season, with players like Sanchez also expected to bring on their A game.

Sanchez won two FA Cup titles at Arsenal during his four year spell. He was offered a contract by the club’s management but the Chilean knocked back the same and he was included in a swap deal that saw him join Man United while Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved the opposite direction. Sanchez’s move to the fortress of Old Trafford was heralded by the fans, as it is given that he established his quality as a top-notch player with the Gunners.

He’s known to be a workaholic winger, who brings his creativity to bare and scores goals. He scored 60 goals for Arsenal in 122 League appearances, which is an average of one goal in two games. A huge part of his success was attributed to his partnership and understanding with the creative midfield force of Arsenal Mesut Ozil. He combined very well with the aforementioned Arsenal midfielder to wreck havoc on opponents.

At United, Sanchez has scored only three goals in the League since he joined, a poor return by any standard. Although injuries have hampered his season, United have been unable to discover his strength. A creative midfielder who knows how to pass the ball can bring out the best in Sanchez. While Mata has been relatively good for the Red Devils, he falls short of certain qualities.

United are expected to be active in the transfer window and Solskjaer must make the signing of a midfield schemer his project. The presence of an inch-perfect passer will make Sanchez thrive at the club. The immediate past season for Manchester United is one to forget as the club failed to win any trophy and failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Aston Villa are willing to keep hold of the talented Scotland international; Hence, they have slammed a huge £50m price tag on his services in order to prevent interested suitors from snatching him off their grip.

In other Manchester United news, England international Marcus Rashford has revealed his happiness under Solskjaer’s tutelage and he wants the Norwegian to remain at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are expected to be in contention for Juventus defender Merih Demiral when the transfer window reopens in January.

Though the Red Devils upgraded their defensive unit when the captured Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bisaka’s services prior to the start of the season, they haven’t been too solid at the back of the pitch.

The Premier League giants have 12 conceded goals, and Solskjaer is set to make some changes to the list of defenders at his disposal.

According to Italian media Tuttosport (via Football-Italia), the Norwegian tactician has set his eyes on the Turkish defender with a view of luring him to the Theatre of Dreams in the winter.

However, Solskjaer will need to contend with Arsenal manager Unai Emery in the race for the 20-year-old. It is believed that the Gunners manager is impressed with the report he got from his scouts who monitored the youngster’s performance against Iceland on Thursday.

The under-fire Arsenal manager has seen his defenders conceded 17 goals in 12 Premier League matches this season, a record which has led to fans displeasure.

The Spaniard is equally linked with a move for Demiral’s services as part of his plans to improve his defence in the second half of the campaign.

The same source further revealed that Serie A side AC Milan are equally keeping a close tab on the player’s situation under Maurizio Sarri, and they hope to beat the two Premier League giants to his services.

Demiral is finding regular game-time too hard to get under Sarri who prefers Leonardo Bonucci, Danielle Rugani and Matthijs de Ligt.
