Alexis Sánchez joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal from Manchester United and the Nerazzurri have an option to make the forward’s transfer permanent in the summer.

The Chile international featured for over a month at the start of this campaign, but an injury in October forced him to spend the rest of the calendar year on the sidelines.

Having returned to action in January, the former Arsenal man has since made an assist.

Earlier this month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed the 31-year-old will return to Old Trafford after his loan spell with Inter.

However, FcInterNews reported the Red Devils are planning to cash in from his sale in the summer. It was also suggested the South American is trying to convince Inter that he’s worth the investment.

Calciomercato now brings a short update on Sánchez and they claim Inter will not initiate talks with Manchester United to sign the player. That’s because the San Siro club ‘already decided’ not to make his stay permanent as he hasn’t convinced Antonio Conte.

Therefore, Sánchez will return in the summer and if he’s not included in Solskjaer’s plans for next season, the Old Trafford side must find him a new destination.

Inter’s stance on the attacker could be a concern for the Premier League club, given it’s quite possible their stance over his return is different in private.
