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.

"He's [Alexis Sanchez] a quality player, I've said it many times. There are times when you're going through periods of injury. He had so many wounds. Sometimes it only takes one click and you enter a great shape, you mark, your confidence grows."#MUFC pic.twitter.com/g9YLj9piaM
“We are not looking at any more signings,” Solskjaer told reporters Friday, according to Goal.
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.
