Alexis Sanchez wants to extend his stay at Inter, and is willing to lower his wages in order to remain at the club past the current expiration of his contract.
This according to Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it, who report that the 32-year-old would be willing to sign a deal that would extend his contract past 2024 by spreading the wages owed for the two years of his contract across one additional year.
The Chilean’s current deal is set to run until June 2023, but he is committed to the Nerazzurri and would like to remain at the club for at least one more year beyond that, to the summer of 2024.
Towards this end, the player is reported to have shown a willingness to take a pay cut from a net €7 million per season to €5 million, with the €14 million to be paid out on his current contract spread out over one additional year.
Nerazzurri fans will be glad to hear that the player is happy in Milan and wants to extend his stay, and the possibility could ease the short-term financial burden of his salary on the club’s balance sheet.
Right now Sanchez is fully committed to international duty, with Chile set to face off against Brazil in the Copa America quarterfinal tomorrow, but when he returns talks could begin on a proposed extension.
