In addition, Sky Italia reports that Inter want to extend the loan of Sanchez until the end of the campaign 2020/21.
United pays a significant portion of his salary of 400 000 £ per week and will probably want that figure to be reduced if he allows Sanchez to play elsewhere for another year.
Sanchez seemed on the point of returning to Old Trafford this summer, and such a scenario seemed likely, but the Cross is exploring all possibilities to keep its services.
While United would prefer to sell the chilean, they know that this might be difficult in the current market.
Draw for sure any kind of transfer fee for the 31-year-old appears to be out of the question, and Sanchez will not give up on his salary is exorbitant.
He barely turned on the world in Italy, scoring once in 16 appearances in a season hampered by injury.
However, the Inter appreciate clearly its contribution and think that it can play a pivotal role in the first title – which could determine whether he will remain at the club next season.
The sporting director of Inter, Piero Ausilio, said last month: “We want to keep everyone, including Alexis Sanchez. We rely on him in the coming months.

“He has been injured for a long time, but it was done well before this, during the matches against Barcelona and Sampdoria.
“I saw the Sanchez during his best campaigns in Udinese and Arsenal.
“He has not had a lot of time, but he now has the chance to show his value and then we will take a decision on him. ”
