Inter Milan have agreed a deal with Manchester United to sign Alexis Sanchez on loan, according to Sky in Italy.
The Serie A side are expected to contribute around €5m of the Chile forward’s salary, and he is set to arrive in Milan on Wednesday for a medical.
Inter, who signed Romelu Lukaku from United for a fee of around £73m earlier this month, are not anticipated to have the option to buy Sanchez as part of the loan deal.
Sanchez impressed in Chile’s Copa America campaign this summer, but is yet to feature for United this season after suffering an injury during the third-place play-off.
However, he did feature in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sheffield United as he continues his rehabilitation.
Sanchez’s imminent departure will leave United with just Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as striking options for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to call upon.
United could be without Martial for a period of time after he suffered a thigh injury in their 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Thought the transfer window was closed? Wrong. Across Europe, plenty of deals are still being done, with Premier League players still able to move to the continent.
The transfer window for Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1 closes at varying times on Monday September 2. Meanwhile, League One, League Two and Scottish clubs’ can also do deals until September 2.
