Alexis Sanchez appears set for a permanent move from Manchester United to Inter Milan and has reportedly already agreed personal terms with the Serie A giants.
The 31-year-old has spent the season on loan with the club and, despite suffering injury problems, has largely been a success.
Sanchez scored four goals and created eight assists in the league to help his side to a second place finish, and appears to be enjoying life in Italy.
There was some confusion over his future ahead of the resumption of Inter’s upcoming Europa League campaign, with United seemingly not willing to allow an extension to his loan due to the fact they are also competing in the tournament.
But according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano Sanchez could soon join Antonio Conte’s side on a permanent basis.
He took to Twitter on Monday evening to post: “Inter and Manchester United are now close to find an agreement for Alexis Sanchez. Inter will buy him on a permanent deal. Last details to be completed soon. Personal terms already agreed.”
The move would draw an end to Sanchez’s nightmare spell at Old Trafford, where he made just 45 appearances in all competitions over two seasons and scored only five times.
It would also come as a huge financial boost to United, with Sanchez reportedly earning a staggering £350,000-a-week at the club.
It is presumed that he would have to take a significant pay cut to join Inter, but he is seemingly willing to do this in order to continue resurrecting his career in Milan.
Inter have raided the Premier League on a number of occasions recently, having signed Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young from United and Christian Eriksen from Tottenham, as well as Victor Moses on loan from Chelsea.
