Ronaldo offers escape route for Man Utd flop as Solskjaer dilemma nears

Brazil legend and Real Valladolid owner, Ronaldo has said his side will “open their doors” to Alexis Sanchez if his career hits a dead end.

Manchester United loaned Sanchez to Inter Milan last summer but it is unclear whether where his future lies.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unlikely to welcome the Chilean back into his first-team set-up, while his wages are a problem for Inter.

What’s more, Sanchez has two years left on his Old Trafford deal signed in 2018, complicating the situation further for Solskjaer.

Speaking on a Zoom call (via the Daily Mail), however, Ronaldo insisted that he would help Sancho out if the need arose.

“Alexis Sanchez has succeeded wherever he’s gone,” Ronaldo said.

“He has a lot of quality. If he doesn’t succeed at Inter, Valladolid will open their doors to him.”

Sanchez’s season at Inter has stuttered due to a three-month lay-off caused by an ankle injury.

However, the enforced break allowed him to regain fitness and he featured on Sunday as Inter beat Sampdoria 2-1.

The winger has made 17 appearances this term, chipping in with one goal and three assists.

Sanchez is one of a number of United-owned players whose futures beyond the summer are uncertain.

Chris Smalling wants to stay at Roma after also leaving on loan last summer, while Marcos Rojo is pining for an extension at Estudiantes.
