Inter Milan assure Alexis (and Man Utd) they want permanent deal

Inter Milan are edging closer to signing permanently Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez.

Gazzetta dello Sport says all three parties involved are working on a deal which will see Alexis sign outright with the Nerazzurri.

Inter are prepared to hand Alexis a three-year contract, with the deal dependent on United's stand over how to cover his wages. Alexis is willing to take a cut on his current £550,000-a-week contract, but Inter will still require United to help part-fund his salary.

In terms of a fee, United have cut their price from €20m to €15m for Inter to buy him outright.

However for Alexis, the big positive is that Inter are now serious about keeping him long-term.
