Alexis Sánchez is on loan at Inter Milan from Manchester United, and has seen his career get back on track.
With the 2019/20 season delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Nerazzurri were successful in extending the forward’s stay until the first week of August.
The existing deal will allow the Chile international to represent Antonio Conte’s side only against Getafe in the Europa League.
According to FcInterNews, the Serie A side’s ‘intention’ is to retain the former Arsenal star beyond the existing loan deal.
It’s claimed that Inter are looking at the possibility of paying €1m to United to retain the 31-year-old until the Europa League final.
The Italians also have plans of keeping the South American beyond this season, and the feeling at the San Siro is that the Red Devils could ‘settle’ for a deal worth €15m, which would include a fixed fee of €10m.
On Monday, Chilean newspaper La Cuarta explained that Manchester City have made contact with the player’s representative.
FcInterNews now claims Sánchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich received two or three calls from English and Spanish clubs in the last week. However, the attacker’s will is to remain at Inter.
The Manchester United man has managed two goals and seven assists since the restart. The website adds Sánchez has already convinced Inter and the latter are now dealing with United to seal the transfer.
