Man United ready to pay £12m to facilitate Alexis Sanchez move to Inter Milan – report
Man United are willing to pay half of Alexis Sanchez's wages if the Chile star moves to Inter Milan next term, according to a report
Manchester United are prepared to pay half of Alexis Sanchez’s wages to facilitate a loan move next term, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Serie A giants Inter Milan are interested in a potential swoop to sign Sanchez in the summer transfer window.
The same article states that Inter Milan would only want to sign the Chile international on a season-long loan deal rather than a permanent deal.
According to the same story, Manchester United would pay half of his wages – £250,000 a week – in order to secure Sanchez’s exit this summer.
The Daily Mirror article adds that the Serie A club could also be a potential destination for Belgium international Romelu Lukaku.
Manchester United signed Sanchez as part of a swap deal with Arsenal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the 2018 January transfer window.
The Chile striker has struggled to adapt to life at Manchester United despite being the club’s best-paid player following his lucrative move.
Sanchez scored one goal and made three assists in 20 appearances in the Premier League last season.
The South American forward’s only league goal came in a 3-2 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford back in October.
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table after a disappointing campaign.
