Inter forward Alexis Sanchez could be on the way out from the club in January, with the player not currently thought to be happy with his situation.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the club would be willing to part ways with the Chilean who is currently dissatisfied with the amount of playing time he is getting.
Sanchez appeared to express his unhappiness at his lack of playing time in a social media post after the Nerazzurri’s match with Sassuolo on Saturday, where he insinuated that the club are not getting the best out of him.
With the 32-year-old looking to be the fourth-choice attacking option in Simone Inzaghi’s rotation, he may wish to leave in search of a more central role with a different team.
The player’s wages have posed a problem to a potential move in the past, but the club would be willing to facilitate his departure, especially as his leaving would not represent a capital loss in the balance sheet due to having arrived on a free transfer, while the effects of the Growth Decree would not be lost as he has been at the club for more than two years.
Should Sanchez depart in January, as both parties could look to make happen, then the Nerazzurri will immediately look to bring in a direct replacement for him during the same window.
