Chilean star Alexis Sanchez has reportedly joined Inter Milan on a free transfer after Manchester United struck off the remaining two years of his deal.
The end of the Sanchez’s Old Trafford nightmare looks set to be confirmed imminently as reports claim the 31-year-old has signed a three-year deal to make his San Siro move permanent
United and Inter have been locked in talks for the last two weeks, with the winger’s loan spell due to run out on Thursday.
Sanchez has rediscovered his form in Italy following a disastrous year-and-a-half for Man United.
United handed Sanchez the most lucrative deal in Premier League history following his move from Arsenal in January 2018, which included a basic wage of £300,000-a-week plus image rights and bonuses which meant he could be paid as much as £560,00-a-week.
However, he scored just five goals in 45 games for the Red Devils, and was quickly deemed surplus to requirements by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Now, according to Daily Mail United have decided to let Sanchez go for free in order to avoid paying him £50m over the next two years.
It is understood Sanchez has taken a dramatic pay cut to join Antonio Conte’s side.
The Mail report his basic weekly wage will be close to the £300,000 he earned at United, but the higher tax rate in Italy means Sanchez will take home around £130,000-a-week.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
