Alexis Sánchez was given a temporary escape route to leave Manchester United last summer when Inter Milan took the forward on a loan deal with an option to buy.

The 31-year-old’s time with the Serie A side has been nothing short of a disappointment as he’s struggled with injuries.

If various reports from Italy are to be believed, Antonio Conte’s side will not make the Chile international’s stay permanent.

Despite a slump in form over the years, the former Arsenal man is still drawing attention from other clubs as there have been rumours of interest from AS Roma.

Now, Universidad de Chile’s president José Luis Navarrete has revealed the Red Devils owned player has plans to join the South American club.

“I have talked with Alexis Sánchez and he’s a fan of La U. He wants to retire or play in the Universidad de Chile,” Navarrete told DirecTV.

Sánchez still has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford and the Chilean club will have to agree a fee with Manchester United for the transfer to take shape. The attacker will also have to take a huge pay cut to join Universidad de Chile on a permanent deal.
