Inter Milan yet to reach an agreement with Manchester United for Alexis Sanchez
According to Sky Sports Italia (h/t MEN), Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Barotta has confirmed that they are yet to agree on an extension on Alexis Sanchez’s loan from Manchester United.
The United star has endured a tough time at the San Siro as he struggles with both fitness and form. Despite what has been an underwhelming spell, the Nerazzurri are keen to extend his loan until the end of the season.
The Chilean’s spell at the San Siro will expire this month. Inter are hopeful they can reach an agreement that will see Sanchez stay until the end of the season.
According to the report, United and Inter are both still in negotiations regarding a deal.
“We are still dealing with Chelsea (for Victor Moses) and Manchester United today to try to extend their loans.”
United are keen to get the 31-year-old off their books. His poor return coupled with his massive wages makes him a liability both on and off the field.
Inter, however, are rivals in our race to win the Europa League. Permitting them to extend Sanchez’s loan will strengthen them as they too attempt to win the competition.
It is debatable if it will be in our best interests to permit Inter an extension. The Europa League looks to be our best route to the Champions League. It makes no sense for us to strengthen a rival.

Sanchez is an excellent player, whose quality is not in doubt. However, he has failed to hit top gear at United, much to our frustration. The last thing we want is for him to turn into prime Messi if we end up facing Inter in Europe.
