Alexis Sanchez in Manchester United training

Report: Sanchez agent meets with Inter Milan to discuss transfer

The agent of Alexis Sanchez has reportedly met with officials from Inter Milan to discuss a potential transfer this summer.

The Manchester United forward has been deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, having failed to replicate his previous form following his move from Arsenal in 2018.

Sanchez has scored just three league goals in 18 months at the club, with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to offload the Chilean.

According to Italian publication, Gazzetta dello Sport, Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich has met officials from Inter regarding a possible move back to Serie A, having previously spent five years in Italy at Udinese before switching to Barcelona.

One stumbling block is the 30-year-old’s huge £500,000-a-week wages, with Inter unlikely to be able match Sanchez’s current financial package, although United’s failure to qualify to make the Champions League will see his salary cut by 25 per cent.

United are thought to be willing to subsidise a portion of the forward’s wages to facilitate a move away from Old Trafford.
