DIRTY SANCHEZ! Inter Milan Interested in Signing Man United Flop Alexis Sanchez on Permanent Deal.

Manchester United have a busy summer ahead of them, beginning with the deadwood Eddy Woodward and Matt Judge need to clear out to make way for Ole’s rebuild. The biggest log of the lot is of course Alexis Sanchez, with the remaining 2-years of his ~$25 million a year contract hanging over United’s necks.

Well it looks like United’s luck has changed with Sanchez’s upturn in form since the Serie A restart, Inter Milan now want to sign him on a permanent basis. This would be a terrific way to start what needs to be a very active transfer window, especially on the sell-side in order to raise funds for further transfers.

While United would likely take a free transfer if it allowed them to get his wages off their books, this would allow money to spent elsewhere (sign da ting Paul Pogba).

More from the BBC:

Inter Milan want to sign Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez on a permanent deal.

The Chile striker, 31, has impressed during his loan spell in Italy and scored his third goal in eight games during Saturday’s 3-0 win at Genoa.

Sanchez was involved again on Tuesday night as Inter maintained their push to finish second in Serie A with a 2-0 win over Napoli.

The player’s United contract – thought to be around £400,000 a week – is beyond Inter’s reach but Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not want to keep the former Barcelona forward for next season.

United have been paying a sizeable portion of Sanchez’s wages since he moved to Italy last summer and the former Arsenal man’s contract is not due to expire until 2022.

Any deal would almost certainly require some kind of pay off from United and a willingness by Sanchez to take a wage cut.

There is uncertainty over how long the player will be permitted to be involved in Inter’s Europa League campaign.

Watch this space, summer Muppetry season has officially begun!

About Alex 61 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
