Man Utd must cough up big to send Alexis to Inter Milan

Manchester United will cough up big to send Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan this week.

The Mirror says United will ship out Alexis this week - but it will still cost them a whopping £13million.

United are a significant step closer to sending the Chilean flop to Inter Milan on loan after the Serie A club agreed a to pay half of his £500,000-a-week wages.

That means the Red Devils will have to stump up the eye-watering sums just to farm him for the rest of the season.

United are pushing for a non-negotiable clause to be added to the deal, which will see Inter sign the former Arsenal star permanently for £20million next year.

But they still have to come to an agreement on the £52million conundrum of who will pay the final two years of Sanchez's United contract from 2020.

But both clubs feel a compromise can be reached and are planning to reopen talks on Monday.
