Marotta has been working to sign Sanchez in secret for weeks. The player wants to play for Conte
It has been a weekend of surprises, events and accelerations. For those who thought that perhaps Inter were caught off-guard because of Edin Dzeko’s renewal with Roma, here is Giuseppe Marotta’s powerful response.
Inter are close to sign Alexis Sanchez: the Nino Maravilla (the Wonder Child) has always been the desired transfer target of the Nerazzurri and more importantly Antonio Conte. The Chilean striker is leaving Manchester United and his desire to return to Italy has in fact accelerated negotiation carried out in secret by Marotta in recent weeks.
It is no coincidence that agent of the player, Fernando Felicevich, has been in London for several days now just to find a solution with the Manchester club which has its own offices in the capital city for market negotiations. Sanchez is very open to join Inter and now it is up to Suning to find an agreement with Manchester United.
This feels like deja-vù of the very busy weeks in July when the two clubs worked for a long time to finalize Lukaku operation which had endless difficulties but distances were reduced day by day and the rest is history. And since yesterday, both sides have been working to close this new operation as well.
