Italian sides in five-way battle for loan signature of Man Utd flop

Date published: Thursday 15th August 2019 2:55

AC Milan have joined four of their Serie A rivals in the running for Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

Sanchez has not lived up to expectations since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January 2018, and he only managed two goals in 27 appearances in all competitions last season.

The former Udinese forward has been linked with a return to Italy, with recent reports suggesting United would be willing to pay a large portion of his wages for Roma to take him on loan.

Now, the Daily Mirror claim that as many as four other Italian sides have entered the race for the 30-year-old.

Alongisde Milan and Roma, Inter, Napoli and Juventus are also interested in the Chilean, whose excessive wages of a reported £25m per season would be a stumbling block for most potential suitors.

Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich met with Juventus in May, with the Serie A champions also interested in a loan move – but United want to see a commitment to buy in any loan proposal.

Sanchez is said to be open to a return to Italy, where the transfer window remains open until 2nd September.
