Premier League giants Manchester United and Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan have been in talks with each other for the majority of the transfer window. Inter Milan were earlier interested in Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku and eventually, they were successful too. They are now all set to rope in another Manchester United player Alexis Sanchez in their team. If reports are to be believed, Lukaku has played a crucial role in the deal.
The Chile International player is apparently on the brim of completing a year-long loan move to Italian side Inter Milan. The year-long loan deal will also have an option for the Antonio Conte side to buy him after the loan terminates. Reports are also adding that the deal would not have materialised without the intervention of Romelu Lukaku.
As per a report carried by Daily Mail, Lukaku led Sanchez to Italy convincing his former teammate to make the move. The Belgian International reportedly called Sanchez several times telling him the beauty of Milan, his new home, and the impact that the transfer would have on him. The report adds that Lukaku explained further to Sanchez how his neighbourhood oozed elegance.
Consequently, Sanchez is set to join Inter Milan before the European transfer deadline on 2 September.
