Speaking at his morning press conference, Solskjaer said Sanchez is firmly part of his plans and wants to be part of the Manchester United team.
"It's these stories again that he's been put in the reserves and all this - of course he hasn't". He's had three weeks now, he's a few weeks behind the rest but he's close to being part of it.
What are United's goals?

Solskjaer claims Sanchez will remain at Old Trafford to offer competition to Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in attack.
"He'll be gradually integrated into more playing time, but we'll have more behind closed doors games and with only one (competitive) game a week it's hard to keep players ticking".
Martial's close-range strike was particularly pleasing for former striker Solskjaer, who played him through the middle and wants the France global to score more tap-ins.
