Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez has agreed to part ways with Manchester United and move to Inter Milan on a free transfer despite still having two years left on his contract.
Premier league side Manchester United are ready to get rid of the Chilean from their books, as Sanchez is ready depart on a free transfer so as to sign permanently with Inter Milan where he has impressed on loan.
Since his move to Manchester United in 2018, he has endured torrid times with the Manchester side as he did not hit the ground running like he was expected. In the second season he didn’t get game time too due to his barren run of games.
After looking unsellable for a long time, the Chilean flop is edging towards a permanent transfer to Inter Milan. The 31 year old had an 18 months nightmare at the Theater Of Dreams after arriving from local rivals Arsenal in January 2017.
He got super bumper contract as he earned £400k-a-week , with a whole lot of added incentives he racks up to £560k-a-week. Despite receiving a huge wage, he found the back of the net just five times in 45 appearances for Manchester United.
Manchester United was the one paying a better part of his salary during his loan spell in Italy.
Despite having two years left on his contract, Alexis Sanchez and Manchester United have both agreed to terminate the contract as United choose to let him go for a free transfer.
The Premier League giants are set to resume UEFA Europa League football this Wednesday night and Sanchez is also set to be on parade for Inter Milan against Getafe. United were actually bent on receiving nothing less than £15million to sell Sanchez to any interested club..
The Italian Serie A giants were not able to afford the fee that Manchester United pegged for the former Arsenal and Barcelona winger so they opted to negotiate instead of paying outrightly.
Sanchez was supposed to make a return to United after the game against Getafe, but the three parties have agreed to a permanent move that ends the miserable affair between United and Alexis Sanchez.
Manchetster United have shown desperation when it comes to getting Sanchez off their books because he’s not adding quality to the team and his stay till his contract expires would cost the club about £55million, that fee is even enough to sign a quality player.
United have now woken up from their slumber as they’ve elected to take a little financial hit which enables them to even bring in a more enticing player and so as to free up their huge wage structure by letting Sanchez leave.
Sanchez would out pen to paper for a three-year deal in Milan worth £130k-a-week after paying tax, to show that he also is ready to leave Old Trafford he received a pay cut to join the Blue side of Milan. Inter’s Head Coach Antonio Conte was the one who initiated a permanent deal for Alexis despite having his own future with the club in doubts.
United are closing in on the arrival of Jadon Sancho, and with Sanchez’s departure he’d take up his No.7 shirt.
