Alexis Sanchez has reportedly agreed personal terms with Inter Milan and is now expected to seal a permanent move to Inter Milan.

Inter have reportedly closed the deal to sign Manchester United loanee Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer.

The Chilean’s career took what can be described as an unexplainable fall from grace.

From being one of the best players in the Premier League at Arsenal, Sanchez could barely get his strides right after a move to Manchester United.

A return of just five goals in 45 appearances prompted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to send him out on loan after 18 months, with Inter Milan proving the club of choice.

It made it all more the more difficult that Sanchez was on immense wages believed to be around 500,000-a-week.

In what could suit all parties, the 31-year-old could now complete a move to Inter permanently.

Fabrizio Romano reported on Monday evening that personal teams had been agreed for Sanchez to become an Inter player full-time, thus ending his spell at Old Trafford.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Nerazzurri have reportedly reached an agreement with the player on a three-year deal worth €7m a year.

The player has, according to the report, terminated his deal with Manchester United by mutual consent.

The decision by Sanchez could now save the Red Devils save around €60m in wages and also saves Inter the stress of paying €15m as initially requested by the Premier League side.

For Inter, they are taking a show of faith after a positive run of form by the winger.

Since the restart of football, Sanchez has been in inspired form for Inter, scoring three goals and supplying seven assists in 10 games.
