Manchester United are about to replace one of their biggest ever flops with one of the world’s most exciting young talents.
Alexis Sanchez has reportedly agreed a permanent deal with Inter Milan, while United’s move for Jadon Sancho draws ever closer.
According to the Guardian, Sancho will earn £250,000-per-week in a five-year contract at Old Trafford with a £90m fee close to being agreed.
Meanwhile, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that United and Inter have reached a final agreement on the transfer of Sanchez.
Sanchez has spent the entirety of this season at Antonio Conte’s side on loan and finally found some form after the restart, registering 10 goal contributions.
Despite his improvement in form, there was no chance he would be considered by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for another chance at United and it’s encouraging to hear that his exit appears imminent.
A report in Di Marzio’s website claims Sanchez will terminate his contract at United and sign a three-year-deal at Inter worth around €7m per-year before taxes.
Remarkably, Di Marzio suggests United stand to save €60m in wages through the sale of the Chilean international, who still has two years remaining on his current deal at Old Trafford.
United have not commanded a fee for Sanchez, with the priority to remove him from the wage bill to free up funds for priority targets.
Moreover, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has teased Sanchez’s exit from United is impeding, with his trademark response to a tweet to popular United account UtdReport.
