Red Devils winger Alexis Sanchez is reportedly among the list of footballers Inter Milan are targeting after missing out on Edin Dzeko who extended his stay at Roma till 2022.
The 33-year-old striker was one of the Nerazzurri’s top transfer targets as the club made a bid of €15m to add him. However, Bosnia international eventually renewed his contract at Giallorossi for another three years, as confirmed by the club.
After missing out on Edin, the Italian club are monitoring four footballers. They are Sanchez, free agent Fernando Llorente, Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ante Rebic and Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik.
Chile international has been lacklustre for Man United since joining the club from Arsenal last winter. Alexis has netted only five goals and has provided nine assists in 45 matches for the Red Devils so far. Last campaign was disastrous for Sanchez as he scored only twice and made four assists in 27 games across all tournaments.
However, the 30-year-old attacker impressed for Chile in the Copa America this summer, scoring two goals and providing an assist as his nation finished fourth in the tournament.
Man United already have the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford as attacking options, and Mason Greenwood could receive some game time too after impressing in pre-season. New signing Daniel James impressed on his Red Devils debut, scoring their fourth goal against Chelsea.
Hence, there is an excellent opportunity Chilean winger won’t get many first-team chances. Inter could be a suitable option for Alexis, where he could indeed find more minutes under Antonio Conte.
