Inter meet Udinese for Sanchez

Inter President Massimo Moratti has held talks with Udinese regarding Stadio Friuli sensation Alexis Sanchez.

Moratti met with Gino Pozzo, son of patron Giampaolo Pozzo, on Monday to discuss possible offers for the Chilean.

According to the Corriere della Sera, the oil baron tabled a player plus cash bid in an effort to tempt Udinese into a sale.

It's understood that Moratti offered €20m, plus the contracts of McDonald Mariga and Joel Obi, as well as the loan of Philippe Coutinho.

Italian international full-back Davide Santon, who has spent the last six months on loan at Cesena, was also discussed.

Udinese are now considering their options, fresh in the knowledge that Inter are not the only interested side.

The Bianconeri revealed on Sunday that they had turned down a €35m offer for Sanchez, a bid which many believe came from Manchester City.

Barcelona and Chelsea have been paired with the 2010 World Cup player too, as have Milan and Juventus.
