On Monday, we covered a couple of claims from both Italy and Chile regarding Alexis Sánchez’s potential move from Manchester United to Inter.
Unable to convince Roma to sell Edin Dzeko, the Italians turned their attention to the former Barcelona winger who has failed to impress since swapping Arsenal for Old Trafford back in January 2018.
The idea from Inter would be to get the 30-year-old on a €2-3m paid loan with a view to buy at €12-15m, while United pay for half of his wages for the next year.
Over in Chile, El Mercurio were very confident about the deal, with claims that Sánchez’s entourage saw the transfer as ‘done’.
However, Gazzetta dello Sport’s Tuesday update suggests those close to the player might have jumped the gun a little bit as the offer hasn’t arrived yet from Inter.
That doesn’t mean nothing is happening, and it’s made clear Inter are ‘optimistic’ of getting a deal over the line for the Chilean, boosted by the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided against calling Sánchez up to his squad for the game against Wolverhampton.
It’s stated Antonio Conte, entering his first season at Inter, is a huge fan of the player, wanting him back in 2011 when he first started off at Juventus, only for the forward to choose to move to Barcelona instead.
Over at Corriere dello Sport, it’s claimed Fernando Felicevich, Sánchez’s agent, continued to negotiate with Manchester United on Monday, but that was put to a stop due to the aforementioned game against Wolves.
There was a lot of talk about a deadline being set for Wednesday to get a deal done, meaning that if any new information comes out, it will be very soon.
