Inter Milan announce they want to KEEP Alexis Sanchez – even after shelling out £100,000 per week for just one goal in 15 matches for the Manchester United flop
- Inter Milan want to keep Alexis Sanchez until the end of the 2019-20 season
- Sanchez’s loan deal expires on June 30 although the season won’t end by then
- Despite scoring just one goal in 15 outings, Inter are intent on keeping Sanchez
- Inter chief Piero Ausilio confirmed the club’s plans for the Chilean attacker
Alexis Sanchez will be staying put at Inter Milan until at least the end of the season, after a club chief announced their intention to hold onto the Manchester United flop.
Sanchez joined Inter on loan last summer in need of a rejuvenation in form, having endured a torrid time at Old Trafford.
However, he’s failed to perform at the Nerazzurri, scoring one goal and providing three assists in 15 outings for Antonio Conte’s side in what has been a season plagued by injuries.
Inter Milan have confirmed that they wish to keep Alexis Sanchez until the end of the season
The Manchester United flop joined on loan last summer in need of an upturn in form
That form hasn’t deterred Inter’s hierarchy, though, despite the club shelling out £100,000 per week on the underperforming Chilean.
His loan expires on June 30, but with the halt in play due to coronavirus, the 2019-20 campaign will extend beyond next month.
Inter’s sporting director, Piero Ausilio, has confirmed that the club wish to keep him beyond that date.
However, injuries have hampered the Chilean, who has scored just once in 15 games for Inter
Inter chief Piero Ausilio says that Sanchez can offer the side a lot in the final twelve games
‘We want to keep everyone, including Alexis Sanchez. We are counting on him in the coming months’ Ausillo told Sky Sports Italia via forzaitalianfootball.com.
‘He was out injured for quite a while, but he did well before that in matches against Barcelona and Sampdoria. I saw the Sanchez from his best campaigns in Udine and Arsenal.
‘He didn’t have a lot of time, but he now has the chance to show his value and then we will make a decision on him.’
The news will likely be received warmly by those at United, with Sanchez not part of the plans
That news will likely be received warmly by those at Old Trafford, with Sanchez seemingly out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the future.
Ausilio also confirmed that the club have already extended former United man Ashley Young’s deal by one year.
Young joined from United in January and has performed strongly in Conte’s wingback-focused system, as the club look to see mount an unlikely challenge to Juventus and Lazio for the league title.
The Italian giants are nine points behind their rivals, with twelve games remaining this season.
