Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez is reluctant to give up his galactic wages to leave Old Trafford this summer.
The London Evening Standard says the 31-year-old is reluctant to take a pay cut just to secure a move, despite it being made clear he is not in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.
Sanchez still has two more years to run on a contract worth around £450,000-a-week, forcing Old Trafford’s hierarchy to weigh up their options as to how to handle their highest-paid player.
The forward has been on loan at Inter Milan this season, with United still paying a significant portion of his salary.
A permanent move to the Italian giants is believed to be his preferred option, but after an injury-hit campaign he looks likely to return to Manchester.
Another loan move could be the best solution for United, who would face having to top up his salary again.
