Manchester United's £50m problem!

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be stuck with Alexis Sanchez when he returns from Inter next month. Alexis is refusing to take a pay cut and has two years left on his £25m-a-year deal.

Alexis Sanchez is reportedly refusing to take a pay cut as he gets set to return to Manchester United next month. There were high hopes for Sanchez when he arrived in January 2018, But two-and-a-half years into his £25million-a-year contract, United are desperate to get rid of him, with his deal having two more seasons left to run.

Sanchez has spent this season on loan at Inter Milan, where his performances have been mixed.

Sanchez dioesn’t now fit into scheme of things at ManU, In his absence, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has settled on a front three of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes behind them. It means there is no space for Sanchez now.

Sanchez wants to continue playing in Europe and is happy at Inter. However, the report says talks have not taken place between United and Inter about keeping Sanchez for next season.


Since Serie A restarted after the lockdown, Sanchez has five assists to his name in the division and leads the way in terms of key passes. Although Sanchez doesn’t fit in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer future roadmap, a player of his capability shouldn’t waste his final years spending on loan. The scenario of not finding a mutually benefitting deal would hurt both the clubs and Sanchez might end up being the biggest flop of Manchester United


Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United has gone on to become one of the most underwhelming signings in the club’s history. Inter now have a faith in Sanchez and an assurance that if any of Martinez or Lukaku don’t play, they have someone to fall back on. With the recent reports on Barcelona trying hard to get Lautaro Martinez, Inter can negotiate with United and offer them a player along with a reduced amount than his current contract.

Sanchez currently earns €14 million net a season and Inter are paying just €5.5 million of that as the loan deal. Thanks to the Italian tax laws regarding foreign workers, Inter could get a 30% discount on his salary meaning they would pay him around €10 million net for the next three seasons. It will cost the club €15 million gross


Inter Milan want to make the Alexis Sanchez loan deal into a permanent transfer but Inter Milan asked Alexis Sanchez to lower his astonishing £500,000-a-week salary if he wants to complete permanent move from Manchester United this summer after impressive season in Serie A.
