Manchester United star, Alexis Sanchez, is close to completing his loan move to the Serie A side, Inter Milan, after rejecting Roma.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly informed the Chilean that he won’t be a regular feature in the starting eleven this season which has prompted the Manchester United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, to push Sanchez out of the club, thanks to his massive wages.
Woodward is said to be aware of the fan’s backlash if a massive earner like Sanchez spends most of his time on the bench, whilst, United’s recent transfer policy of focusing on the youth and giving opportunities to the academy kids could also have played a part in getting rid of Alexis Sanchez.
The 30-year-old has had a torrid time at the Old Trafford since his move from Arsenal (their payback for the whole Van Persie thing), spending most of his time injured or being terribly out of form.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would ‘reportedly’ rather provide opportunities to Mason Greenwood and Daniel James instead of going back to Sanchez which has prompted this whole saga.
While Roma where the first club to register an interest in the Chilean and were ready to take him off our hands, Sanchez reportedly rejected that opportunity before Inter Milan got into the mix.
Inter Milan are said to be the preferred option for Sanchez and here’s what the reports are saying:
Sky Sport Italia reports the two clubs are expected to continue talks on Wednesday, even though Inter believe they have a deal in place that would see them cover €4 million of Sanchez’s wages, along with an option to make the move permanent for €15m next summer.
Everything seems to be falling in place with Sanchez’s medical supposed to be on Thursday. Hopefully, Inter Milan also exercises that permanent option at the end of the deal and concludes this saga once and for all!
