Inter have all but decided that they will not be pursuing a permanent move for Manchester United owned Alexis Sanchez according to a report from the online edition of British news outlet The Manchester Evening News.

The Chilean national team attacker joined the Nerazzurri club on a season long loan this past Summer but has barely played due to injury and when he has he has far from impressed.

Inter, as per the report, are paying 75% of Sanchez’s £400,000 (approximately €455,000) a week wages and reports in Italy have stated that Inter would be unable to afford pay Sanchez’s annual wages in full which is another reason why they will not be trying to sign him outright.

Since his arrival at the Nerazzurri, the former Barcelona and Arsenal player, who still has two years left on his current deal with Manchester United, has made 15 appearances in which he has scored one goal and provided five assists.
