Manchester United won’t extend loan deals for Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling
Not only are United against unwilling to let them see out their Europa League campaigns at their current clubs but also from extending the loan into next season. (h/t Sky Sports)
The Red Devils are keen to offload both players permanently and are not keen on a temporary switch. The duo’s original loans were set to expire in June. However and extension was agreed upon that permitted them to stay until early August and see our the Serie A season. (h/t Sky Sports)
Smalling has rebuilt his reputation as a no-nonsense defender in the Italian capital. He has proven himself to be a key player for the Italian capital outfit as they fall short of a Champions League birth.
Inter, on the other hand, are still in contention to finish second. Sanchez endured a tough start to life at the San Siro. His form has significantly picked up since the restart.
Both players will be big missed for the Italian duo’s Europa League campaigns. With the competition set to resume in August, they will have to make do without their loaned stars.
This could work out well for United who are also in the tournament. Denying our prospective rivals top players weakens them while at the same time boosting our chances.
It makes more sense when one takes a look t the draw. We could potentially face Roma in the semifinals before possibly facing off against Inter in the final.
Whether this will force Roma and Inter’s hands to make the deals permanent remains to be seen.
