Pogba, 25, was on the brink of leaving United after a number of bust-ups with Mourinho, but he has found a new lease of life under Solskjaer.
In his last nine games, the midfielder has scored eight goals and provided five assists for United.
Speaking to the Mirror, Sanchez said: "Paul Pogba is still young, but he is a great player, who has to be trusted in the team.
"Now I see him far more involved in the team and he's playing well. There's a great atmosphere at the club."

United team-mate Anthony Martial also hit out at Mourinho by claiming the club are seeing "the real Pogba" since he was sacked.
Mourinho led the Reds to their worst start to a season in 28 years, but Solskjaer has guided the club into the top four after eight wins from their last nine.
Sanchez, who has scored just twice this season, does not believe the club's change of direction is down to luck.
He said: "About what happens inside the locker room, I never speak.
