The former Arsenal man is the highest paid player at the club on £500,000-a-week.
But Sanchez has not played for Manchester United since their 1-1 draw at Huddersfield on the penultimate game of last season.
Solskjaer is adamant the 30-year-old is important to the club following the sale of Romelu Lukaku.
Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are first-choice for the Red Devils with youngster Mason Greenwood waiting in the wings.
But Solskjaer believes Sanchez could play a lot of matches for United this season.
He said: “Alexis is such a professional and he comes in working every single day really hard and wants to be a part of this.
“It’s these stories he’s been put in the reserves of course he hasn’t, he’s had three weeks now, he’s a few weeks behind the rest but close to being ready.
“Alexis we don’t have the biggest forward line in numbers so Alexis might end up playing a lot more games than you expect, we expect him to come good at this club, he’s quality.”
