Since joining from Arsenal, Sanchez has scored only five goals. His current wages of £500,000 makes it difficult for him to secure a move to another club.
With the transfer window still open, Solskjaer believes Alexis Sanchez will have to fight for his place at Old Trafford if he wishes to remain with the club this season.
When asked if he would be willing to help Sanchez get back to his best, the Norwegian said:
“I will have to help, but you can’t spoon feed them.
“They’ve got to come in and grab their chances.
“Alexis is quality and he showed it in Copa America. Then he got his injury.
“I don’t think it’s too bad so I’m hoping he will be available for maybe Kristiansund [on July 30] or AC Milan [four days later] so he will at least get some football before the season starts,” Solskjaer replied.
