Inter Milan have reached an agreement with Manchester United to take Alexis Sanchez on loan until June 2020.
The Serie A giants approached United over their interest in Sanchez earlier this summer and talks between the two clubs have advanced at a rapid pace in the last few hours.
Sanchez has had a miserable 18-month spell at United – managing just five goals in all competitions since his move from Arsenal – and has been desperate to follow Romelu Lukaku to the San Siro in order to resurrect his career.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Inter and United will put the finishing touches on the move on Wednesday morning and Sanchez will then fly to Milan to undergo a medical.
It’s understood Inter will pay €5million of Sanchez’s €12m wages.
However, Antonio Conte’s side have no option to buy the Chile international at the end of the season. Sanchez will arrive at Inter with Cristiano Biraghi who is completing a switch from Fiorentina this summer.
