Inter could try and keep a hold of Alexis Sanchez past the end of this season according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport.

The Chilean national team attacker is currently on loan at the Nerazzurri from Premier League club Manchester United and if he is to have a good end to the season, Inter may consider trying to keep the former Barcelona player at the club.

There is an obvious difficulty to any move though and that is his bumper salary. The former Arsenal player currently earns €12 million a year at Old Trafford and Inter have not even covered as much as half of it for the duration of his loan with the club.

Whilst on loan at Inter, the 31-year-old has made 15 appearances across all competitions to date. In just under 600 minutes on the pitch, he has scored one goal and has provided three assists for his teammates.
