Alexis Sanchez's proposed loan move from Manchester United to Inter Milan is reportedly close to being completed.
The Chilean attacker is free to leave Old Trafford before the September 2 European transfer deadline as United look to offload a large chunk of his £505,000-a-week wages.
The 30-year-old is expected to spend a year at San Siro with an option for Inter to make the move permanent for around £15m next summer after both clubs agreed on the terms of his salary.
United are willing to pay a percentage of Sanchez's wages but had been pushing for Inter to contribute a larger proportion, and the two clubs are understood to have now agreed a salary figure of £4.2m.
Sanchez has scored just five goals in 45 appearances for United since January 2017, costing the club around £8.2m per goal.body check tags ::
