Inter’s situation with forward Alexis Sanchez is still difficult, and the club and player will seek a parting of ways during the January transfer window.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Chilean remains unhappy and the club would be ready to let him leave although his wages could be an obstacle to finding a new club.

Sanchez is unhappy with his playing time at the Nerazzurri since his return from injury, with the 32-year-old having appeared to hit out at the club in a social media outburst after he was an unused substitute in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo over the international break.

The player has managed to play every minute of Chile’s two World Cup qualifiers during the break so far, proving he is fit, but there are still questions about how much of a role he has at Inter.

The Chileann earns a net of €7 million per season until 2023 and the Nerazzurri would not be averse to getting him off of their wage bill, though it could still take work to find a club who can financially accommodate him.

Should Sanchez depart in January, a new striker would be sought out by the club in the transfer market.
