​​Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the club will not be looking for any free agents to bolster his squad even if Alexis Sanchez ends up leaving Old Trafford before the European ​transfer window closes.


The Red Devils made two key signings during the summer transfer window, with Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka making their way to the squad. However, ​Romelu Lukaku moved to ​Inter Milan while Sanchez is also on the verge to make a move to San Siro by departing on loan.


Regardless of the above, Solskjaer has inisisted that the club won't be looking to dip into the free agent transfer market even if Sanchez leaves, as he defended the Chilean by suggesting that injuries are the reason the Chilean international has not succeeded with the team.



“We are not looking at any more signings,” Solskjaer told reporters Friday, according to ​Goal“[Sanchez] is a quality player, I have said it so many times. There are times when you go through spells with injuries."


The United manager further stated, “He has had so many injuries, like niggles, and there is no 100 per cent fact why this or why that. Sometimes it just clicks and you go into a vein of form you score, your confidence grows and it will hit anyone’s confidence when you don’t really perform.”


In such a situation, Manchester United could end up being more depleted up front if Sanchez leaves too. It remains to be seen if that will pose a problem as the season progresses or if Mason Greenwood steps in and takes his chance as and when the moment arrives.
