Manchester United attacker Alexis Sanchez is closing in on a loan move to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan with an official announcement expected in a matter of hours.
The Chilean international has touched down in Milan for his medical ahead of the loan transfer.
According to Spanish news outlet Sport, Manchester United will pay part of his wages at Inter Milan ahead of the 10-month loan deal.
The loan transfer is not accompanied by the option of a permanent transfer.
Manchester United will pay £6m from his wages, while Inter Milan have the responsibility of paying a bigger portion of his salary.
The Nerazzurri will pay £9.64m of his wages at the club.
Alexis Sanchez is expected to link up with former Manchester United teammate Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan when he completes his 10-month loan deal to the club in the coming days.
Manchester United are willing to let Alexis Sanchez leave the club before the European transfer window ends next week after failing to perform at the club despite the fact that the Chilean earns more than any other player at the club and in the Premier League as a whole.
He would be hoping to revive his career at Inter Milan.
