Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed to United’s vice-chairman Ed Woodward that he wants the club to sell Alexis Sanchez, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia. According to the sportbible.com Solskjaer is involved in the planning process for certain areas of the squad that he wants to improve next season. In order for the club to buy players next season they also have to sell a few players so the they can balance the books.
These players apparently aren’t in the plans of the manager next season. Antonio Valencia will be out-of-contract at the end of the season. The manager may be looking at other options at the wing-back position and may not offer him a new one year contract. As for Marcos Rojo his season has been hampered by injuries and he has only made three appearances so far.
Alexis Sanchez has had a stop and start season because of his knee and hamstring injuries. He hasn’t been able to show the stellar form that he had at Arsenal. The Chilean also earns around £ 400,000-a-week this has reportedly made contract negotiations difficult with David De Gea and so by selling Sanchez the club would be able to balance the books better.
