Inter Milan are considering turning Alexis Sanchez’s loan switch from Manchester United into a permanent move.
They now seek secure a €20 million (£18m/$22m) cut-price deal for the striker.
MySportDab can confirm that the Chile international will stay with Antonio Conte’s side until the beginning of August.
With a loan extension already agreed to allow him to see out the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign in Italy.
Sanchez was due to return back to Man United in June, although an agreement has been reached to prolong his stay at San Siro.
He will not be allowed to feature in the Europa League tournament, should Inter Milan advance to the next round.
Inter Milan haven’t given up hope of changing United’s mind, but it appears the Red Devils won’t switch from their original decision.
Sources confirmed to MySportDab that United are reluctant to allow Sanchez to continue turning out for Inter.
While risk injury so close to the start of the 2020-21 season as any setback would hinder their ability to sell the Sanchez.
The Chilean has struggled to impress in his two years at Man United owing to various injury issues and a lack of form.
And the Red Devils are open to offers when the summer transfer window opens.
There are some that feel Sanchez has also failed to make a sufficient impact at Inter although Conte has been impressed with the 31 year old.
Sanchez scored and claimed two assists in his side’s 6-0 win over Brescia last time out and Inter are desperate to sign him.
With Lautaro Martinez being strongly linked with a move to Barca, so the permanent signing of the striker would add another option in attack.
An agreement had been in place for Inter Milan to sign Sanchez for €25m from Man United.
Although CEO Giuseppe Marotta is now confident of getting the player for a reduced €20m fee.
