Manchester United will pay half of Sanchez's wages for the entire year on loan, Inter want to close within 48 hours
Inter want to seal the deal for Alexis Sanchez as soon as possible, ideally would be within 48 hours so Sanchez can start immediately the adventure in black and blue. At this club, he will find his close friend in Romelu Lukaku with whom he shared the Red Devils shirt for one and a half season. Alexis, tied to the English club until 2022 with a salary of €15M per season (bonuses included), has given his ok to join Inter (last Saturday) and he is ready to accept a reduction in wages as well. Such an important signal which has helped the Zhang family tremendously as Inter are ready to put up €15M allocated aside for Edin Dzeko to sign the Chilean.
Yesterday was fundamental to further shaping the last details between the clubs, with Felicevich personally involved. The formula for this transfer is almost decided: €2M-€3M for loan plus option to buy set at around €12M-€15M. The timing of payment, which is deferred in the case of Lukaku, is still being determined. The English club will also contribute half of Sanchez’s salary for the entire loan year.
