Alexis Sanchez has been underperforming ever since he joined Manchester United from Arsenal past year and it is more or less certain that the forward will be on his way out of the club during the summer transfer window.

The United squad, including former boss Sir Alex Ferguson and former chief executive David Gill, arrived at Manchester airport on Monday morning having earlier driven into training.

Sanchez, who played 141 times for Barca in a three-year spell, has been out for six weeks with a knee injury and Matic has missed the past three games.

The Nou Camp has an added significance for Solskjaer after he scored a stoppage-time victor in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich at the stadium in United's treble-winning season.

"But I think City are too good a team to slip up against Manchester United". I will feel the butterflies, I will be excited.

"We have one of the best goalkeepers in the world", said the Norwegian, but De Gea's future is far from certain as he holds out for a pay packet at least on par with Sanchez with his current contract set to expire in 2020. Since [Pep] Guardiola took over they have been absolutely brilliant.' The United manager believes he can replicate his Treble success now he is at the wheel at Old Trafford.

"Alexis has been here and played here", Solskjaer said.

United go to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona on Tuesday night looking to overturn a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford in the first leg.

United must come from a goal down in the second leg of their Uefa Champions League tie with the La Liga leaders and beat a side who have won 27 of their past 30 home games in the competition. "[PSG] is not that long ago and we are one goal better off [now]".

It's explained Manchester United fans were constantly booing Coutinho when he was on the pitch and it has "convinced" him not to join them, if he decides to leave the Spanish champions in the summer.

The same article states that Solskjaer is already working with the club's recruitment team to identify players that could improve his squad this summer.

Similarly United's chance of winning the Champions League this season has reduced to around 1%.
