Daily Mail are reporting that the Chilean is unhappy and is ready to leave United and move to Serie A, where he starred for Udinese before moving on to big clubs such as Barcelona and Arsenal. The highly-publicized move came with much fanfare and a weird announcement video in which Sanchez was seen playing the piano.
After a really long time, the Man United backline looked pretty strong as both Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka made great starts to their careers at Old Trafford.
However, Sanchez has scored just five goals in 45 appearances for the club after netting a four-and-a-half-year deal reportedly worth almost £500,000 a week.
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League last term, missing out on Champions League football for the second time in three campaigns.
Manager Solskjaer is determined for the club to get rid of Sanchez at the earliest as he does not consider him part of his first-team setup.
"But it's not just about fitness, fitness is important but a young team you expect loads of energy but we also have quality".
The Chilean media's coverage on Alexis Sanchez is always huge.
Things haven't been good for Sanchez at United.
Solskjaer is adamant the 30-year-old is important to the club following the sale of Romelu Lukaku. Back when the transfer window opened, United were willing to pay almost half his salary if a side is willing to take on the rest.
Roma have cooled their interest after being keen on the South American and it is understood he was not happy with their offer.
United would prefer a permanent deal to get Sanchez's hefty salary off their wage bill and would probably have to subsidise any Ioan.
