Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez could be forced to take a pay cut if he wants to stay at Inter Milan, reports say.
Recent reports revealed the Red Devils are ready to sell Sanchez this summer after he agreed personal terms with Antonio Conte’s side.
The Chile international, who is now valued at £14.4m, has only scored five goals in 45 games for Man United and has been a persistent thorn in Ed Woodward’s side ever since he arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal in January 2018.
Try as he might, the executive vice-chairman has been unable to get rid of him for good so far.
However, that may be about to change, as Inter have reportedly expressed interest in signing the Chilean permanently, so he will have to significantly reduce his salary demands with his wages worth £400,000-a-week at the Theatre of Dreams.
According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson, Sanchez is not part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans and United are open to another long-term loan but would prefer to sell even if they have to take a substantial loss.
Solskjaer may face his toughest challenge in the transfer market, as he will have a hard task finding suitable buyers for the deadwood because clubs are struggling to cope with the financial pressures of these unprecedented circumstances.
Conte seems to have made his life a whole lot easier as Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed the Nerazzurri want Sanchez to stay at the San Siro.
The Chilean is considered surplus to requirements by Solskjaer and could be shipped out the door as soon as possible.
