Here are your Manchester United morning headlines for Thursday, April 9.
The Inter view on Sanchez
Manchester United have put out feeders for potential suitors for Alexis Sanchez, the MEN understands .
Sanchez is currently on loan at Inter, and United hoped the Chilean would rejuvenate his career at San Siro.
That hasn’t been the case, though, and the Serie A side are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal this summer.
“He started off really well, better than I'd expected, given how poor his performances at United were ever since he joined the club from Arsenal, if we're completely honest,” explained Nima Tavallaey Roodsari , founder of Italian outlet Sempre Inter .
“However, unfortunately, when he really got going he became injured whilst playing for Chile against Colombia and was sidelined, only coming back a few weeks before the pandemic broke out.
“So it's hard to give an overall impression that isn't disappointing given the situation, although it has to be said that there were some very encouraging sparks of good form before he was injured.”
Fernandes reveals reason behind move
Bruno Fernandes says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s enthusiasm was one of the main reasons why he signed for United.
The Portugal international, who has been a major hit since arriving from Sporting CP in January, has revealed the faith Solskjaer showed in him was decisive in convincing him to sign for United.
“I need to know I am backed from the coach, because sometimes when you change club, not every time the coach wants you.
"Not like I need to come because the coach wants me to play, no, not like this, but I want to feel the confidence from the coach… if he has confidence in me, then the rest is working.
“I need to work to conquer my place, to play, to keep going with games and games and games. For me this is the most important.”
Why Lindelof is training elsewhere
Victor Lindelof has been training with former club Vasteras SK since returning to Sweden.
With the Premier League season currently on hold, United players are working hard to stay in shape.
Lindelof is now back in his native Sweden and has been given permission by Solskjaer to train with his old employers.
The centre-back played for Vasteras between 2007 and 2011, before moving to Portuguese giants Benfica.
Sweden is not currently in lockdown, with Solskjaer giving Lindelof the green light to keep his fitness levels up with his hometown club.
