Alexis Sanchez has already apologized for his form at Manchester United, and it seems he will now be leaving Old Trafford.
But there’s a catch: United will have to pay him close to $15.5 million a season for him not to play for them.
Yep, that’s right.
Sanchez, 30, is reportedly wanted by Inter Milan on loan for next season, as the Chilean scored just one Premier League goal in his first full season at Old Trafford as he struggled to get into the team.
Multiple injuries curtailed any chance he had of getting back to his best form, and Sanchez is very much on the outside looking in as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aims to dramatically rebuild his United squad this summer.
Sanchez signed a huge $645,000 per week contract in January 2018 and still has three more years left on that deal which saw him arrive from Arsenal in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan. At the time it seemed like a very good deal (the eye watering numbers aside) as Sanchez had been one of the best players in the PL for multiple seasons and would give United’s attack a cutting edge with his driving runs and eye for goal.
