Despite the hefty price tag for his release, at £100 million, Jadon Sancho continues to attract the attention of Manchester United and to further convince Borussia Dortmund to release the winger, Alexis Sanchez has been put on the table. If the Bundesliga side will accept, the Chilean will transfer from Inter Milan next season.
Reports said United is ready to offer a number of players on the club's roster and Sanchez is part of the list. The proposal by the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a testament to the seriousness of the plan to bring Sancho back to England.
According to Metro, a group of players will be made available for Dortmund to make it easier for the Germans to decide on the ongoing transfer talks for Sancho. The report cited an earlier story from Mundo Deportivo.
It is understood the overture from Old Trafford is also a way for United to cut a deal that will reduce the price that Dortmund is asking for Sancho's release.
Sanchez is currently on loan to Inter but he still has a two-year deal with the Red Devils. He was sent out to Italy due to issues on consistent performance and Solskjaer has already stated that the 31-year-old is no longer part of United's long-term plans.
There is no indication that the Chilean will be signed to a permanent deal at Inter as the struggles he had with United continued in Milan. The likelihood is Sanchez will be sent back to Solskjaer at the conclusion of the campaign.
The next move by the Norwegian is to package him on a developing swap deal with Dortmund. According to Talk Sport, it will be a case of offloading on the part of United as the club wants to be clear of the forward's high wages.
Sanchez collects a weekly salary of £500,000 and it is believed that Dortmund will pick up on the tab. The German club had previously provided a break to underperforming players like when former Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer was plucked out from the Catalans.
The jump gave the boost needed by Alcacer as he shone in Bundesliga and went to prove his worth again with La Liga side Sevilla.
Back on Sancho, United seemed not bothered by the slow start of the 20-year-old in the resumed German football season. The winger came off the bench in his first three games but Dortmund said the youngster is expected to get his first-team slot soon.
Sancho is said to be recovering from a calf injury, which his team noted is but a minor issue.
