Alexis Sanchez has agreed personal terms with Inter, claim Sky Sport Italia, and his agent is flying out for talks with Manchester United.
The Chile international is said to be enthusiastic about the move to San Siro, which will see him finally work with Antonio Conte after several close calls over the years, and take part in the Champions League.
Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio insists Sanchez has agreed personal terms with Inter, taking a significant pay cut to help the move go through.
Now his agent Fernando Felicevich will fly out to Britain for negotiations with Manchester United.
A loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season, most likely with a clause making it obligatory after a certain number of appearances, would be suitable for all parties.
It’ll also allow him to reunite with good friend Romelu Lukaku and would come at a total cost of around €20m.
This is a return to Serie A for the 30-year-old Chilean, who first shot to fame at Udinese from 2007-11, before moving to Barcelona, Arsenal and eventually Manchester United.
The Nerazzurri had to look elsewhere after Edin Dzeko signed a contract extension with Roma.
