Manchester United: Expensive flop set for a final farewell from the club

Red Devils are bracing for the arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

Just one week into the transfer window, Manchester United, already, have seen themselves linked with every high profile player invariably. Among the slew of stories revolving in the rumour mill, Jadon Sancho saga has gained the most traction.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has considered the Borussia Dortmund winger as a vital piece to building a world-class attack capable of rubbing shoulders with Europe’s finest. Having decided against moving away from Germany last summer, it looks increasingly likely that Man United fans have a new number seven to revere.

It also points towards the direction of the former number seven’s predecessor, Alexis Sanchez, whose permanent move away from Old Trafford is all but confirmed. The Chile international has spent a season away at Inter Milan on a loan term and has returned four goals and nine assists in the Serie A.

Despite an injury-stricken campaign, Sanchez has earned the trust of Inter while making 22 league appearances for Antonio Conte. The Chilean has established himself as an attacking lynchpin besides his then-United and current teammate Romelu Lukaku, often operating as a number ten or an auxiliary striker.

After an appalling spell with Manchester United, Alexis Sanchez needed to get some consistent game time to prove his calibre – once considered among the world’s best. With Conte, the former Udinese attacker has got some belief as one of squad’s centrepiece.

Inter and Manchester United have reached the final agreement for the permanent transfer of Alexis Sanchez to the Nerazzurri. Sanchez will terminate his contract with the Red Devils and sign a three-year-deal with Inter, worth €7 million per year after taxes.

Despite the rumors of Manchester United setting an asking price of €15-20 million, the parties have agreed that Inter will not pay any transfer fee, in a deal that will allow the Premier League side to save €60 million, a sum equal to Sanchez’s salary for the two years that the player had left on his contract with United. (Via:

As per Italian reports, the clubs have settled on a transfer with no fee to be paid by Inter, however, the Italian club will take over his full salary amounting to the sum of €7 million per year after taxes. It is also sais that Alexis Sanchez’s new deal with the Nerazzurri will be a three-year contract.

All but announced, it appears Sanchez’s United days are behind him now and the club will finally offload what has to be their biggest and most expensive failure this decade. The club regains needed funds to act in the market and invest it in players on their way in.

Do you think Inter Milan will the Serie A next season?
