Alexis is on his way out

Inter and United try to thrash out €12m deal

Alexis Sanchez could be leaving Old Trafford for Inter Milan once his huge wage demands are met

Alexis Sanchez will complete his loan move away from Manchester United to Inter Milan this week.

But the deal will only be concluded after the clubs agree on the Chile international's €400,000 a week wage packet.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under fire after the controversy over Paul Pogba's missed penalty in Monday's Premier League draw away to Wolves and he is keen to put the Sanchez issue to bed.

The United manager admitted that talks were ongoing about former Arsenal man Sanchez but UK bookmakers have stopped taking bets on any other move apart from Inter.

"At the moment he is our player. Some clubs have shown interest in Alexis," said Solksjaer, with Marcus Rojo also on the way out at Old Trafford. Sanchez trained with his United team-mates yesterday but played no part in the draw with Wolves.

Inter are keen to take Sanchez on loan with a view to a permanent move for €12m but, wary that his wage demands could cause unrest among the rest of the squad, they are demanding that United agree a deal on the player's bonuses and loyalty payments.

Inter, who have also signed Romelu Lukaku from United, have 11 days to complete the deal before the Serie A transfer window closes.
