The 31-year-old has started just two Serie A matches during an injury-hit campaign and is now likely to return to Old Trafford before a decision is made over what to do about his long-term future, says the Telegraph.
The former Arsenal man still has two years remaining on his lucrative £500,000-a-week contract but has looked a shadow of the player he was since leaving the Emirates.
Sanchez is popular in the Inter dressing room but his hopes of making a big impact were ruined by a serious ankle injury back in October.
The forward has featured primarily in cup competitions since returning from his three-month lay-off and his days at the San Siro are coming to an end.
Antonio Conte has decided that he does not want him anymore, which means he is to be sent back to United in the summer.
