Inter have reached an agreement with Manchester United to renew Alexis Sanchez’s loan deal until 5th August, with the Nerazzurri keen to keep the Chilean for next season as well, according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia late last night.
The report details how the 31-year-old Chilean forward will return to Manchester after the Nerazzurri’s game against Getafe, unless the Milanese club reach an agreement with the Red Devils to keep the player.
Inter understand that they could pay around €10-15 million for Sanchez if they purchase him now, rather than waiting. Negotiations are still ongoing, although one idea would be a one-year loan deal with a buy obligation attached, the report continues.
The Nerazzurri did want to wait before signing Sanchez but now may accelerate to pay the low price. The Chilean has made 20 appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring two goals and providing six assists in that time.
