Alexis Sanchez agrees personal terms with Inter Milan over Manchester United transfer

The Chilean forward joined the Serie A club last summer after a torrid time at Old Trafford, in which he never truly lived up to his potential.

Sanchez’s departure from United was a relief to all involved with the club, from disgruntled fans to no doubt the player himself.

It was never likely that Sanchez would return to Old Trafford at the conclusion of his loan spell at the San Siro, but negotiations still need to be thrashed out between Manchester United and Inter Milan over a possible transfer fee.

Such is the uncertainty surrounding football finances in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is unlikely that Inter will pay the €20m fee United Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward is holding out for, with it understood that the Red Devils are willing to accept €15m.

Whatever is agreed fee-wise, one thing that is for certain is that Alexis Sanchez has agreed personal terms with Inter Milan on a three-year deal, with it claimed the former Barcelona man could earn up to €15m in wages per season.

Manchester United losing those sorts of numbers off their books will certainly give them an advantage when attempting to do business this summer.

Crystal Palace tracking QPR forward Eberechi Eze

The Eagles ended their 2019-20 Premier League campaign in 14th place, with a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Selhurst Park ending a wretched run of 7 consecutive league defeats.

Roy Hodgson’s side scored the second-fewest goals in the Premier League this season, with only Norwich City – relegated in bottom place – having a worse strike rate.

There is a need therefore for Hodgson to freshen up his attack, as a lack of goals combined with an ageing squad is a cause for concern amongst Crystal Palace supporters.

Palace’s reported interest in 22-year-old Eberechi Eze from QPR will no doubt perk up some of those dubious Eagles fans, with the forward having bagged 14 goals in all competitions for the West London outfit this season.

West Ham United are also said to be keen on the England U21 international, but it’s understood Crystal Palace are in pole position over a possible switch.
