Alexis Sanchez’s loan deal at Inter Milian has been extended and will see out the rest of this season at the Italian.
Antonio Conte’s side are reportedly paying £100,000 per week of Sanchez’s £350,000 wages but the Chilean has struggled for form and has managed just two Serie A starts for the Nerazzurri this season, no thanks to a peroneus tendon injury.
The existing loan deal was due to expire on June 30th and they were concern Inter might decide not to extend the loan deal.
However, according to Sky Sport Italia via forzaitalianfootball.com, the Nerazzurri’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that the club will keep the Chilean until the current campaign is completed.
‘We want to keep everyone, including Alexis Sanchez. We are counting on him in the coming months’ Ausillo said.
‘He was out injured for quite a while, but he did well before that in matches against Barcelona and Sampdoria. I saw the Sanchez from his best campaigns in Udine and Arsenal.
‘He didn’t have a lot of time, but he now has the chance to show his value and then we will make a decision on him.’
The director also confirmed that the club had already triggered a one-year extension to former Red Devil Ashley Young’s contract.
Sanchez’s loan extension is a chance to prove his value to Inter or even resurrect his career at Old Trafford.
