Alexis Sanchez returning to Man Utd expecting bumper loyalty bonus

Alexis Sanchez could be due a bumper loyalty bonus from Manchester United.

The Sun says United will be forced into paying Alexis Sanchez a staggering £1.1million loyalty payment when he returns in July.

The Chilean forward has had a disastrous spell on loan at Inter Milan, and struggled to make any impact because of an ankle injury.

The £505,000-a-week winger has scored just one goal in 15 appearances in Italy, and the club have turned down the chance to sign him permanently.

The ex-Arsenal man is expected to now return to Manchester at the end of his loan, with two-years still left on his Old Trafford deal.

And United will have to give the 31-year-old the hefty annual cash windfall, as part of the terms he signed when joining from the Gunners in 2018.
