Manchester United ‘will not let Inter and Roma extend the loans from Sanchez and Smalling until next season
Manchester United ‘won’t let Inter Milan and Roma Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling borrow for next season … while looking for permanent moves at the club for the pair’
- Manchester United likes permanent deals for Sanchez and Smalling
- The pair will return to Old Trafford after the last day of Serie A on August 2
- They are not available to play in the final stages of the Europa League
Manchester United have indicated that they do not wish to renew the current loan agreements of Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling with Inter Milan and Roma.
The pair originally had a season-long loan until June, but had extended their deals to the first week of August so they could play the remainder of the Serie A season after the corona virus ended.
Under the current agreement, the two players will return to Old Trafford after the last scheduled Serie A match day on August 2.
Alexis Sanchez has contributed two goals and seven assists since the restart of the season in June
The pair will not be available to play in the final stages of the Europa League as United could potentially play the Italian sides in the final stages.
United are excited about permanent transfer for Sanchez and Smalling in their efforts to boost their summer transfer kitty, according to Sky Sports.
Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot could all leave Old Trafford this summer if United were to receive an appropriate offer, with Dortmund star Jadon Sancho as the main target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer is also keen to recruit a center back and a striker to lift the burden for Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
The club spent £ 75 million last summer when Harry Maguire, Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were brought in, but the coronavirus pandemic will make the money considerably more difficult this year.
