BBC Sport reported recently that the Red Devils would actually have to pay off Sanchez in order to convince the 31-year-old to join Inter on a lower wage.
Sanchez has struggled with some injury troubles this term and was unconvincing for the most part of the season, but the South American has been phenomenal since the restart.
Sanchez has contributed three goals and seven assists in just 13 Serie A outings in this period, that’s clearly convinced the San Siro outfit to bring over the star permanently.
Getting Sanchez’s mammoth wage off the books will be a massive piece of business by United, fans will be hoping that this decision frees up funds for signings this summer.
