Spanish newspaper Sport claims that Inter are in advanced talks with Barcelona to loan Alexis Sanchez, with Luuk de Jong going the other way, pending Sevilla permission.
It is not new that Alexis Sanchez could leave San Siro in January, although he has impressed recently with some good performances and goals.
His injury record is a concern, though, and his salary is another issue that the club is eager to shake off.
According to Sport, Inter are in ‘advanced talks’ to loan Alexis Sanchez to Barcelona in the January transfer window.
In exchange, the Nerazzurri would get De Jong for six months, as the 31-year-old Dutch striker is currently on loan from Sevilla.
He has made just 11 appearances for Barcelona in all competition this season, contributing one goal.
The report assures Sevilla are not against the idea of De Jong going to Inter.
This would be a nostalgic return to Camp Nou for Chile international Sanchez, who left Udinese for the Blaugrana in 2011 and he remained until 2014.
His contract with Inter runs to June 2023 and it remains to be seen if an option to buy would be included in the deal.
He made 14 appearances for the Nerazzurri this season, scoring two goals and providing three assists.
