Italian giants Inter Milan have restarted talks to sign Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez on loan for the rest of the season.
Inter and United had been in talks over a deal earlier in the month but they has ground to a halt when it became clear The sides were some way apart on the terms of the deal.
However, Inter still want to do a deal. It is thought United want Inter to pay at least £5 million of Sanchez’ wages and have a £15 million option to buy at the end of it.
Sanchez has endured a rough time in Manchester since his move from Arsenal in January 2018. Injuries and a loss of form have meant he hasn’t got near to his best form at Old Trafford.
Nevertheless, while Sanchez doesn’t appear to be an integral part of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, letting him go would be a gamble. Having sold Romelu Lukaku to Inter already and not replaced him, if Sanchez went it would leave United with little back up in the forwards department – at least until January and the reopening of the transfer window – apart from promising, but untried, youngsters.
Sanchez is apparently keen to leave but doesn’t want to take a pay cut. However, Inter are said to be confident a deal can be done ahead of the European transfer window closing on September 2.
