Inter are set to announce the permanent signing of Alexis Sanchez after agreeing a fee with Manchester United, according to reports in Italy.
The Chile international has spent the season on loan with Antonio Conte’s side and has impressed since Serie A restarted in June.
United have been keen to offload Sanchez after he struggled to make an impact following his arrival from Arsenal in January 2018.
According to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, United and Inter have now agreed on a €15 million (£13.5m) transfer fee for Sanchez and the deal will be announced after the Italian club’s Europa League clash against Getafe on Wednesday.
Inter have already indicated that an agreement is in place after they included Sanchez in their Europa League squad list which was released on Monday.
Sanchez, who is on a £400,000-a-week deal with United, has reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with Inter which keeps him at San Siro until 2023.
Sanchez, however, could potentially be playing under a new manager next season following a rift between Conte and Inter’s hierarchy.
Speaking over the weekend, Conte admitted he was unhappy with what he perceived to be a lack of support from Inter chiefs.
‘It has been a tough year on a personal level, very tough,’ Conte said after Inter beat Atalanta to finish second in Serie A.
‘I don’t think the players saw their work recognised, I don’t think I saw my work recognised and we all received very little protection from the club.
‘We have to grow and improve in all areas, including off the field, and a big club should protect its players more.
‘We’ll discuss it all at the end of the season, I have to meet the president [Steven Zhang] and he’s in China right now.’
