Pinch yourselves: Alexis Sanchez nightmare close to an end with Inter Milan and Juventus reportedly keen.
Well, this is the new many Manchester United fans have been craving ever since the overpaid flop played his final chord on his stupid little piano.
It barely seems believable that even one club would be silly enough to inherit the sinking ship that is Alexis Sanchez, however it seems Inter now face competition from Juventus for the signature of the forward, making it all the more likely that his Manchester United nightmare will end this summer.
According to the Independent, there have been meetings between intermediaries and both clubs.
The Old Trafford club desperately want to offload the super flop this summer but have found his mammoth wages – which seem more and more ridiculous by the day – an obstacle. Believe it or not, not every team wants to fork out £400k+ a week for a man who barely warrants £4k.
Inter and now Signora Omicidi are willing to look at a deal, however Sanchez MUST drop his financial demands, or United subsidise his wages if a deal is to be brokered. Given how toxic the Chilean has been in the dressing room, and the evident impact his wages have had on the rest of the team, we don’t doubt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be willing to make a sacrifice.
Genuinely, if United manage to shift Alexis it would represent the greatest bit of business they have done in years; which is both a reflection on how utterly terrible the club’s recent transfer policy has been and just how poor the Chilean turned out.
