Inter Milan have reached an agreement with Manchester United to take Alexis Sanchez on loan until June 2020.

The Serie A giants approached United over their interest in Sanchez earlier this summer and talks between the two clubs have advanced at a rapid pace in the last few hours.

Sanchez has had a miserable 18-month spell at United – managing just five goals in all competitions since his move from Arsenal – and has been desperate to follow Romelu Lukaku to the San Siro in order to resurrect his career.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Inter and United will put the finishing touches on the move on Wednesday morning and Sanchez will then fly to Milan to undergo a medical.

It’s understood Inter will pay €5million of Sanchez’s €12m wages. However, Antonio Conte’s side have no option to buy the Chile international at the end of the season.

Sanchez will arrive at Inter with Cristiano Biraghi who is completing a switch from Fiorentina this summer.

Following United’s defeat to Crystal Palace, Solskjaer admitted Sanchez could leave if Inter made a suitable offer before the European transfer deadline on September 2.

‘Alexis is a quality player, of course he is,’ the Norwegian said.

‘We don’t have loads of options. If there is an offer that is good enough for the club and for him maybe he’ll go.

‘If not, he’s still our player and he’s a quality player.

‘He’s been training well, as I said before, there’s no doubt about his quality either. So let’s see.’
