Manchester United have finally moved one step closer to offloading Alexis Sanchez as Inter Milan are set to sign the Red Devils flop.
United are ready to get rid of Sanchez as his transfer has turned out to be underwhelming. Ed Woodward has made some major mistakes over the years but signing Sanchez has to be near the top of the list.
The club had high hopes for the Chilean after they beat Manchester City to his signature but those feelings quickly dissipated after he arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal in 2018.
Sanchez, who turns 32 in December, has only found the back of the net five times in 45 appearances for the Red Devils. His performances have struggled to justify his colossal wages which are reportedly worth £400,000-a-week.
Although he has struggled with multiple injuries and a slump in form, that doesn’t hide the fact he has failed to live up to expectations so far.
According to Goal, Inter boss Antonio Conte is considering making his loan move permanent as they are considering a €20m (£18m) cut-price deal.
Sanchez starred as the Nerazzurri romped to a 6-0 win over Serie A strugglers Brescia at San Siro earlier this week. He scored and set up other goals as Conte’s side moved closer to a place in the Champions League.
However, United are prepared to cut their losses, as he has fallen out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It is unlikely that Solskjaer will be particularly bothered, as the Norwegian has a wealth of attacking options at his disposal.
