Man Utd news: Inter Milan want Alexis Sanchez, the player awaits Solskjaer’s permission. The move will be a loan deal that will keep him in Italy until June 2020.
Alexis Sanchez is probably the biggest fall from grace story in all of football. The Chilean had three amazing seasons at London with Arsenal. He seemed to be heading for greater things when he joined Manchester United. However, things haven’t gone according to script and both the club and the player have suffered enormously since.
In his 45 appearances for the Red Devils, Sanchez has only managed 5 goals. The Chilean is also very injury prone. To make matters even worse, his huge wage pay means it has been almost impossible for Manchester United to shift him out. However, it seems that a move away from the Old Trafford has presented itself.
Sanchez to Inter?
Sky Sport’s Fabrizio Romano has reported that Inter Milan are in talks with Manchester United over a possible loan move involving Alexis Sanchez. Part of the wage will be paid by United. The deal will last till June 2020 with Inter having the option to make the move permanent for €15M. Alexis Sanchez is also interested in the move and has asked the club’s and Solksjaer’s permission to leave. The ball is now in Manchester United’s court.

It will be interesting to see if Solskjaer agrees to the move. It was only last Friday that the Norwegian spoke about the importance of having Sanchez in the squad considering how bare their attack was.
“Alexis is such a professional and he comes in working every single day really hard and he wants to be a part of this,” the United manager said. “There are these stories he’s been put in the reserves; Of course he hasn’t. He’s part of our squad and he is a really good player. He has had three weeks now, so he’s a few weeks behind the rest but close to being part of it.
“We don’t have the biggest forward line in numbers so Alexis might end up playing a lot more games than you expect and we expect him to come good at this club; he’s quality.”
