Man Utd on brink of selling Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan

Manchester United are on the brink of selling Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan.

Corriere della Sera says Inter's sporting director Beppe Marotta agreed on a deal with United, which will see the Serie A side part with £13.5million for him.

The move will be announced after Inter's Europa League clash with Getafe on Wednesday - in which he was named in the Serie A side's squad for the remainder of the competition on Monday.

It will come as a massive relief for United who were desperate to offload Sanchez considering how he was earning a whopping £350,000 a week at Old Trafford while hardly playing.

Inter have been contributing around £150,000-a-week to his wages but were keen to avoid paying the full amount should he sign for the club.
