Alexis Sanchez’s proposed loan to Inter Milan is edging closer, with Manchester United demanding that the move includes a £20million obligation to buy at the conclusion of the Chilean’s initial spell in Italy.
The £52million signing has endured a tumultuous time of it in Manchester since joining in January 2018, netting only three times in 32 appearances, while struggling to find consistency for Ole Solskjaer’s side. A move away would seem a positive step for all parties involved.

But Sportsmail understands the San Siro club are planning on offering Sanchez a contract worth no more than £150,000-per-week if they decide to make the deal permanent next summer.
The South American will be 31 next summer and Inter chiefs are understandably reluctant to commit a huge burden on their wage bill given his age.
That would mean that those at Old Trafford would have to foot the remaining £350,000 of Sanchez’s £500,000-per-week wage. His contract runs out in 2021.
Antonio Conte sees Sanchez as an ideal attacking option to accompany Romelu Lukaku
Inter remain keen on securing the services of the 30-year-old star. Antonio Conte sees Sanchez as an ideal attacking option to partner former Manchester United team mate Romelu Lukaku, who joined the Italian giants earlier this summer for a reported £75million fee.
Conte has urged his bosses to get the deal over the line before his side face Lecce in what will be the former Chelsea boss’ first home game in charge.
Even if Sanchez joins Inter, United will be left to pay a considerable amount of his wage
