- Alexi Sanchez is set to make a return back to Man United from his loan spell with Inter Milan
- The Chile international's time at Inter is reportedly coming to an end without an extension
- Man United are looking to add more firepower to their attack with both sides with the Europa League still within their grasp
Alexis Sanchez is reportedly set to return to his parent club as the Red Devils are unwilling to extend his loan deal at Inter Millan.
According to The Mirror, the 31-year old could return to Old Trafford as early as July to help the team campaign for Europe.
The motivations behind the discontinuation of his loan deal are quite odd, as reports indicate United are unwilling to further bolster Inter’s attack as they consider the Italian giants as competition.
Both Inter and Manchester United are in the running for Europe League glory this season as they are both into the quarter finals of the competition.
Inter was willing to bear some of the burden of Sanchez’s lofty wages by extending his loan deal at least by two months so he could finish the season in Italy.
The Italian giants are however unwilling to give Sanchez a permanent deal, and United are more keen on bringing him back to Carrington.
Ahead of United’s game against Tottenham last week, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer strongly hinted Sanchez still had a slim lifeline at United.
“Of course there’s a place for good players and good people in this environment,” Solskjaer said. “Let’s see where we get to after the season because we do feel this squad is exciting. We do feel we’re on the way to something,” the gaffer said.
For Inter, the Chile international failed to rediscover his blistering form that made him a crucial part of both his former clubs Barcelona and Arsenal.
He has scored only once in 17 games for the Italian outfit in a loan outing that has been riddled with injuries and struggle for match fitness.
Inter were also dealt another blow as Chelsea are also set to recall their Nigerian winger Victor Moses.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Scott McTominay has committed his long term future to Manchester United until the summer of 2025 with an option of an additional year.
The 23-year-old has spent 15 impressive months under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Scotland international has been rewarded.
McTominay made his senior debut back in 2017 against Arsenal and has gone on to become an important member of the Red Devils squad.
