Alexis Sanchez will have to take a pay cut if he wants to sign for Inter Milan permanently, sources have told ESPN.

United agreed a short extension to Sanchez's loan at Inter to cover the end of the Serie A season after it was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The agreement is due to end after the final round of fixtures on Saturday and sources have told ESPN that United will not sanction another short-term arrangement to cover the remaining Europa League games in Germany in August.

Inter have expressed an interest in signing Sanchez permanently but the Chileinternational will have to significantly reduce his demands with his contract worth close to £400,000-a-week at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old still has two years left on his deal at United following his move from Arsenal in January 2018.
