Internazionale now face competition from Juventus for the signature of Alexis Sanchez, as it now seems likelier his Manchester United nightmare will end this summer.

There have now been concrete meetings between intermediaries and both clubs.

The Old Trafford club desperately want to offload the Chilean flop this summer, but have found his huge wages an obstacle.

Inter and now Juventus are willing to look at a deal, but only so long as he drops his financial demands, or United subsidise his wages.

While that remains a hugely complicated prospect, it is understood there was progress in some of the meetings.

Inter are also interested in United's Romelu Lukaku in what is likely to be a busy summer for the Serie A club.
