Man United may pay Inter to sign Alexis Sanchez
Where will Alexis Sanchez be for the 2020-21 season?
Sanchez moved from Arsenal to Man United in 2018, however the Chilean forward never managed to lock down a consistent first-choice place in the United XI.
This season, he’s been on loan at Inter Milan. That loan deal will expire at the end of the Serie A campaign.
Sanchez’s contract at Man United expires in 2022.
This week, the BBC have reported that Inter are keen on signing Sanchez permanently. Readers are told:
Inter Milan want to sign Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez on a permanent deal.
Any deal would almost certainly require some kind of pay off from United and a willingness by Sanchez to take a wage cut.
Inter Milan won again last night. In line for best Serie A finish since 2011. Want to sign Alexis Sanchez from Man Utd on a permanent deal. Completing the transfer not straightforward due to Sanchez’s massive contract at OT.

Why would Man United agree to a Sanchez pay off?
Under the terms of his current deal, Man United are due to pay Alexis Sanchez another 50 million pounds.
The Telegraph have calculated this sum, reporting:
Sanchez’s salary (is) worth £400,000 a week with image rights before bonuses and agents fees are factored in.
If honoured, Sanchez’s contract until June 2022 stands to cost United in excess of £50m.

Alexis Sanchez & Inter Milan
31-year-old Sanchez has played 21 times for Inter in the Italian top-flight this season.
He’s scored 4 goals and contributed 9 assists.
Is it possible that Alexis Sanchez returns to Man United?
That doesn’t seem likely, according to Times reporter Paul Hirst.
Sanchez now appears the poster-child for Man United’s recent failings in the transfer market. Readers are told:
Sanchez did not get on with many of his United team-mates and his presence is a constant reminder of an era in which over-spending on players nearing 30 was tolerated.
Will Man United sign Jadon Sancho?
This remains unclear.
However, Italian transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, has teased Man United fans by reporting that there will be an update on Sancho’s possible move to Old Trafford very soon.
soon my friend, soon I’ll update about Jadon. Promised 🙏🏻
