Manchester United are set to sell Alexis Sanchez this summer after he agreed personal terms with Inter Milan.
The Red Devils are ready to sanction a transfer for the Chilean, who has only scored five goals in 45 games for Man United. The 31-year-old has reportedly accepted an offer of a three-year deal from the Nerazzurri, according to reports.
He has spent the past season on loan at Inter Milan after falling out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
According to Gazzeta dello Sport, as per SportWitness, his representatives have reached an agreement with Inter which would see him stay at the Serie A outfit until 2023. Italian transfer guru that Fabrizio Romano revealed Antonio Conte’s side want to sign him on a permanent basis and the newspaper supports his claims.
The transfer window has barely been open and speculation is already rampant on social media as fans are discussing who United will sign this summer. Old Trafford is expected to become a hub of activity in the weeks ahead, with players set to come and go between now and deadline day.
Solskjaer could face his biggest transfer market challenge yet, as it will be difficult to find buyers for the deadwood in the current economic climate, although Inter seem to have made his job a whole lot easier.
Ed Woodward has held talks with the Serie A giants over a swap deal for Sanchez involving Ivan Perisic as part of an exchange deal. The executive vice-chairman will want to rectify his mistake of signing the Chilean in the first place.
Sanchez, who is valued at a figure of around £15m, currently earns a staggering salary worth £400,000-a-week, which Woodward will want to get off the wage bill as soon as possible.
Conte appears to have given his old adversaries a lifeline as he is keen to sign the veteran in the summer.
