Alexis Sanchez’s £500,000-a-week contract with Manchester United has been terminated by mutual consent, reports mirror.co.uk.

Sanchez, one of the biggest flops in United’s history following his January 2018 switch from Arsenal, is now free to join Inter Milan.

United are expected to confirm their decision to rip up Sanchez’s contract today.

The 31-year-old forward’s season-long loan spell at Inter was due to expire today, but the termination of his deal with United – which had two years to run – means he is now a free agent.

Chile star Sanchez will have to take a considerable pay cut to facilitate his move to Inter.

The Italian club set to pay less than half of what he was due under the terms of the final two years of his United contract.
