Alexis Sanchez agrees Man Utd exit with Inter Milan medical scheduled for today
Manchester United has agreed on an agreement to send Alexis Sánchez to Inter Milan, but no purchase option has been agreed.
Manchester United has agreed to an agreement with Inter Milan that will make Alexis Sánchez join the loan of the Italian club.
The 30-year-old striker has fought during his time at Old Trafford and has not been able to reproduce the threat of goal he was playing while playing for Arsenal and Barcelona.
Sanchez has scored only five goals in 45 appearances since leaving the Emirates in January 2018.
The Chilean international has fallen in the hierarchical order in the United with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial being the preferred options of the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in advance.
Even the graduate of Mason Greenwood Academy is currently ahead of Sanchez, and the young man has made three substitute appearances so far this season.
Inter Milan reached an agreement with United to borrow Sanchez for 10 months, but there is no option for the Serie A club to buy the player as part of the agreement.
Sanchez has been criticized for his performances for the Red Devils given his reported salary of £ 400,000 per week.
Inter cannot afford to pay the player’s full salary during the course of the agreement and, according to reports, previous offers from the Italian club have seen them offer to pay 150,000 pounds a week from Sanchez’s salary, however, this was rejected by United that I wanted more.
However, according to the Italian publication Calciomercato, Inter agreed to pay United 5 million euros for Sanchez to lend.
They also claim that the player will fly to Milan for a medical exam on Wednesday before being confirmed as an Inter player.
Sanchez will join former United teammate Romelu Lukaku at Inter, after the Italian team signed the striker this summer for £ 74 million, which consisted of £ 60 million in guaranteed rates and £ 14 million in supplements.
The Belgian had also fallen out of favor with Solskjaer, despite scoring 15 goals in 45 games for United last season.
