Man Utd boss Solskjaer ready to freeze out Alexis

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to get tough with Alexis Sanchez.

The Sun says Solskjaer is ready to banish Sanchez to train with the reserves unless he agrees to a move away.

Manchester United are said to be desperate to get Sanchez, who earns an eye-watering £500,000-a-week, off the wage bill before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.

Roma are currently the only potential suitors and are considering a love move for Sanchez, but his salary is likely to be a stumbling block in talks.

United are reportedly willing to share the burden of Sanchez's wages and will pay a large percentage of them to tempt other top European clubs.
