‘Medical expected Thursday’ as Man Utd move Sanchez goalposts

Manchester United want Inter Milan to pay more over a potential loan move for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

During Friday’s press conference Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appeared to end talk of Sanchez leaving, despite the Chilean failing to achieve anywhere near his best since joining from Arsenal in January 2018.

Solskjaer spoke about his belief that Sanchez, 30, would come good at Unitedbut just days later the manager opened the door to an exit by the Premier League’s highest-paid player.

The Red Devils were reportedly asking for €15m (£13.7m) initially for Inter to take the Chilean on loan for the season.

However, Sky Italia now claims that United have increased their fee demands, while they also want the Serie A side to pay a higher percentage of Sanchez’s wages.

The report adds that United and Inter will hold further talks on Thursday and another Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Sanchez could even undergo a medical on the same day with a deal likely.

Sanchez has only scored five goals in his 45 appearances for United over his two seasons at Old Trafford and is yet to appear this campaign.
