Inter Milan remain coy on Alexis Sanchez permanent move

As reported by the Mirror, Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan are still tight-lipped on their intentions over the possibility of signing Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez on a permanent transfer.

The 31-year-old Chilean joined the Nerazzurri on loan last summer after a disastrous 18-month spell at Manchester United. And while he didn’t fare all too better in Italy, the former Arsenal star has found his mojo back since the resumption of the campaign.

Indeed, Sanchez has been in brilliant form of late and is leading Inter Milan’s late title push after leaders Juventus dropped points regularly in recent weeks.

In 17 Serie A matches this term, Sanchez has contributed with 3 goals and 8 assists. To put things into perspective, two of his three goals and six of his eight assists have come since the season resumed last month.

Inter do not have the option of making the 31-year-old’s transfer permanent. But given his form, they are likely to consider such a move.

However, Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta refused to be drawn on the possibility of signing Sanchez on a permanent deal. (h/t Mirror)

“He’s an important player. It is premature to talk about the future, his rights belong to United. We will also evaluate his future with the coach, however, thinking that he is not our player and we will have to buy him.”

It is good to see that Sanchez is rediscovering his best form but the team is performing brilliantly under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So there isn’t much space for the Chilean at Old Trafford as things stand.

A permanent move to Inter would, thus, be a best-case scenario for all parties involved.
