Inter Milan chief Beppe Marrotta said the Italian club are struggling to agree a loan extension over Alexis Sanchez with Manchester United.
The Chile international has spent the season on loan at Inter, and United would like to get him completely off the books this summer because of his crazy wage package.
United still have to sort out the striker’s immediate future. A fresh agreement is needed for Sanchez to play the rest of the season with Inter after the campaign was brought to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Taking a quick look at Inter’s schedule for the remainder of the season, they have 10 Serie A matches left to play, as well as the Europa League which United are also looking to win.
Inter could face the same problem with other players on loan such as Chelsea winger Victor Moses or Bayern Munich’s Ivan Perisic.
Morrotta says Inter remains in talks with all three clubs over extended loan deals, but he’s clearly frustrated by the situation.
“This is a great regulatory anomaly that needs to be resolved because we are still dealing with Chelsea and Manchester United today to try to extend their loans,” Marrotta told Sky Sport Italia.
“It is not a beautiful thing. We are also dealing with Bayern Munich over Ivan Perisic.”
Well, if you want to avoid this down the line, buy your players! By all means take Sanchez permanently.
