There surely is an attraction between the earth and the sun but the force produces very less acceleration keeping in view the huge mass of earth and sun. And that acceleration so produced is again balanced by the centripetal force of the rotating earth.
However we always need to make necesary corrections in thee satellites's orbits which we launch manually.
