Alexis Sanchez’s Inter Move a ‘Done Deal’ After Nerazzurri Make Improved Wage Offer

?Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of a loan switch to Inter, after the Italian side made an improved offer for the winger, according to the latest reports.

Sanchez’s time with the Red Devils has been nothing short of a disaster, following his move from Arsenal in January 2018. The Chilean has scored just three Premier League goals for United and is yet to feature this season, due to his involvement at the Copa America in the summer, as well as reoccurring injuries halting his recovery.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keen to end the expensive forward’s nightmare spell at Old Trafford as he attempts to usher in a new era.

Inter have been in talks with United over a loan deal in recent days. However, Sanchez’s salary had been a sticking point.

According to Italian news outlet ?Gianluca Di Marzio, ?I Nerazzurri made an improved offer to United in terms of the percentage of salary paid, with the Italian side now willing to pay around €5m after taxes for a year of his salary. 

This would leave ?United needing to pay the remainder of his salary (potentially as much as €15m). The report does highlight the fact that the player’s wages have been reduced by 25% this season due to the club’s lack of involvement in the Champions League this season.

Di Marzio states that there is ‘optimism’ that the deal will be completed before the player flies out to Italy.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano is even more optimistic, claiming the transfer is a ‘done deal’ on Twitter, while the BBC’s Simon Stone calls the deal ‘close’.

Romano adds in a later ?Instagram post that Sanchez is set to travel to Italy for a medical on Wednesday before completing the one-year deal with no option to buy.

This proposed move would see ?Sanchez join up with his former United teammate Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian sealed a switch to Inter in the summer – and has made a strong start to life there, ?bagging a goal on his debut against Lecce.
