Maicon and Milito sold for Sanchez?

Inter are said to be using Douglas Maicon, Diego Milito and Davide Santon in order to sign Udinese's €30m-rated Alexis Sanchez.

The Nerazzurri have never disguised the fact they want the Chilean talent, who is also a target for the likes of Manchester United, Juventus, Manchester City and Barcelona.

Newspaper Leggo suggests the money will be raised in several different ways to beat the opposition.

First of all, Inter are prepared to sell Maicon and Milito in the summer, as both have reached their 30s and disappointed so far this season.

Brazilian right-back Maicon has interest from Spain and England, although his price-tag has dropped to around €15m a year after Real Madrid's offer was rejected.

Striker Milito has barely featured due to a series of injuries, but could be heading for a return to Genoa at around €10m.

There is also another incentive that Inter hope to use in order to gain favour with Udinese in the race for Sanchez.

Santon is currently on loan at Cesena and could be handed over to the Friulani as part-exchange for El Nino Maravilla.

Other options include Coutinho and MacDonald Mariga.
