The 31-year-old endured a disastrous spell at the club following his move from Arsenal in January 2018 and while United remain open to offers, they will not sanction a cut-price exit to get him off the books.

His £500,000-a-week deal runs until 2022 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told it is likely he will have to include the former Barcelona man in his plans for next season.

Sanchez has struggled with injury since his temporary move to San Siro and has scored just once in six appearances.

Meanwhile, United are set to continue talks with Sporting Lisbon as they look to agree a fee for midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The two clubs have until Friday's transfer deadline to reach a compromise. United are keen to agree a structured deal worth around €60 million but it remains €20m short of Sporting's valuation.

Sources have told ESPN that United are unwilling to go above a guaranteed fee of €55m while the Portuguese wide want €60m up front another €20m in bonuses.
