Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd to offload marquee signing for bargain £25m

Date published: Friday 15th November 2019 11:58

Manchester United are ready to cash in on a major Old Trafford flop, while AC Milan and Napoli want an Arsenal midfielder – all in Friday’s European press.



Manchester United have no intention of bringing Alexis Sanchez back to the club and want to put a permanent sale in place, according to reports.

The Chilean forward is spending the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Serie A side Inter Milan after struggling to make his mark at Old Trafford.

And The Athletic states that the 30-year-old will be sold, if he can impress during his time in Italy.

Sanchez, however, has so far managed to score just once for Inter and is currently on the sidelines with an ankle injury which will keep him out until the new year.

If Sanchez were to leave Old Trafford next summer, it has previously been reported that United would demand at least £25million for the forward.

The transfer fee would be used to pay off part of a huge severance package for the attacker, who is still owed in excess of £40m in wages – with almost three years left on his current contract.
