ALEXIS SANCHEZ is braced to return to Manchester United this week having failed to agree a loan extension with Inter Milan.
The Serie A side want the Chilean to remain in Italy and complete the corona-hit campaign with ten games left of the season.
Inter Milan are still in the Europa League which is set to commence once the league fixtures come to an end.
Despite being riddled with injuries and making just three league starts, Inter chief Beppe Marrotta confirmed the club want to keep Sanchez while also attempting to land extensions for Victor Moses and Ivan Perisic.
He told Sky Sports: “This is a great regulatory anomaly that needs to be resolved because we are still dealing with Chelsea and Manchester United today to try to extend their loans.
“It is not a beautiful thing. We are also dealing with Bayern Munich over Ivan Perisic.”
It has been reported that United don’t want Sanchez playing in the Europa League because they want to weaken their opponents.
If United miss out on the top four, then winning the Europa could be the only way of booking their spot in the Champions League next season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to flog Sanchez permanently and get his staggering £505,000-a-week salary off the wage bill.
The Red Devils are already paying the majority of his salary while he plays at the San Siro.
But with Covid-19 having a huge impact on football finances globally, United know finding a buyer will be easier said than done.
They will then hope to use the cash to land the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.
