Jadon Sancho remains Manchester United's preferred choice

Alexis Sanchez exit will help the club in the pursuit of Jadon Sancho

According to the Italian publication, Corriere Della Sera via ESPN (h/t Express), Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez is closing in on renewing his loan deal at Inter Milan by another season.

The Chilean enjoyed a tough start to life at the San Siro. Injuries and bad form severely impacted his performances. Despite those difficulties, he has enjoyed his time in Italy.

United are not interested in sending the 31-year-out on loan again. However, given his mammoth £400,000-per-week wages, finding a buyer is easier said than done.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to get rid of Sanchez so that he can fund a move for Borussia Dortmund superstar Jadon Sancho. Widely tipped as one of United’s top targets, Dortmund are holding firm on their mammoth valuation of the player.

It was earlier reported by the Sun (h/t Express), that United and Inter could work out a permanent deal for Sanchez. However, that fee might not come until next summer.

According to the report, Inter could take him on loan for another season with an obligation to pay £20million next year.

Sanchez has experienced an improvement in form since the restart. He has scored two goals and assisted seven in nine appearances in the Italian Serie A.

This upturn in form could help sway the Italians’ interest. These numbers are much better than anything he has put up in a United shirt.

Even a temporary move away would suit United. With two more years left on his contract, Sanchez’s return could set the club back by £50m.
