Alexis Sanchez To Have Inter Milan Medical On Tuesday

Alexis Sanchez is expected to undergo an Inter Milan medical as early as Tuesday after agreeing a loan with €15m option to buy from Manchester United.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the Chile international would move to Inter on a free loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season for €15m.

Manchester United would also contribute to pay approximately half of his salary during the loan deal, which is reported to be £300,000 a week.

If all goes well. Alexis could be in Italy tomorrow evening, preparing to undergo a medical and sign the contract on Tuesday.

The former Udinese star, who turns 31 in December, has emerged as Inter’s top pick to supplement Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez after Edin Dzeko signed a new contract with Roma.

Alexis has reportedly been on Antonio Conte’s wish-list for many years, going back to Juventus. Sanchez shot to fame at Udinese in 2008-11, moving to Barcelona for €26m, then Arsenal for €42.5m in 2014 and four years later Manchester United for €34m.

At Arsenal, Alexis was one of the top strikers in the world, but he became a shell of the player he was when he arrived at Old Trafford, scoring just 5 goals in 45 appearances.

Inter are hoping that they are getting the Arsenal Alexis, but the worry here is that he never regains that form again and we get more of the same that Manchester United saw.
