Alexis Sanchez wages

Alexis Sanchez has been handed an ultimatum by Inter Milan.

That’s according to Italian website Tuttosport, who claim the Chilean attacker must half his wages to complete a permanent switch.

Sanchez, 31, is currently earning £400,000 per-week at the San Siro with parent club Manchester United subsidising his wages.

But Inter would consider a summer transfer if Sanchez agrees to reduce his wages to £200k per week.

Chris Smalling to Tottenham

Tottenham are planning a move for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.

Smalling is currently enjoying a season-long loan with Roma, who are eager to secure his signature on a permanent basis.

Tuttosport claim the Serie A outfit have already opened talks with United chiefs to discuss a deal for the 30-year-old former England international.

The Red Devils want at least £17million for Smalling and Jose Mourinho could capitalise on Roma’s reluctance to meet the asking price.


  • How Man Utd may line up under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season

Sean Longstaff pursuit

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has removed Newcastle star Sean Longstaff his list of potential targets.

The 22-year-old was widely linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer.

However, United opted against bolstering their midfield ahead of this campaign as they waited to land Bruno Fernandes for £47million in the winter window.

With Paul Pogba expected to depart at the end of the season, the Manchester Evening News claim the Red Devils still require a holding midfielder.

But Longstaff will apparently not be considered as Solskajer wants to pursue other options.

Jadon Sancho transfer deadline

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will hope to get a deal for Jadon Sancho over the line before Euro 2020 as he fears the 19-year-old’s price could inflate with a strong showing for England.

Potentially five of England seven matches, including the semi-finals and finals, could be on home soil at Wembley.

That should provide Gareth Southgate’s side with the springboard to go one better than their World Cup semi-final last time out.

This year they will also benefit from Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho’s inclusion in the squad.

The international competition gets underway on June 12 so Woodward will look to get a deal for £100million-rated Sancho completed bag before then, according to the Telegraph.
