Reports claim that Man United and Inter Milan are discussing a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Ivan Perisic in this summer transfer window.

It is obvious that the Red Devils are desperate to offload Alexis Sanchez and that makes it a good deal for the team if they are able to get his weekly wage off their books.

Having spent a year loan with the Italian giants, they are now considering keeping the Chile international at the club on a permanent basis and that have him participate in the Europa League in August.

The same applies to Ivan Perisic who has been on loan with German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich and it is obvious he is no longer needed at the club as they have not activated the £18 million buyout option on his loan deal.

Spanish outlet Fichajes, therefore, reports that both teams are seriously considering a swap with the Red Devils hoping that Ivan Perisic will be a better player than the former Arsenal man and will bring in his experience to help the younger players.

Man United are keen on another striker as Nigerian international Odion Ighalo would be leaving the club in the January window to return to his parent club in China.
