Inter Milan, reportedly want to extend Alexis Sanchez’s loan deal

It appears Inter Milan are serious about keeping Alexis Sanchez around for a while, as reports say they want to extend his loan deal beyond the expiration date.

According to top Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, Antonio Conte is impressed with Sanchez’s form since the restart, and wants to extend his stay, to allow him play for them in the Europa League.

The Chilean’s current loan spell is expected to expire in early August, but Conte wants him around, to play in the Europa League final, which comes up on August 27.

Inter is also said to be working on a penalty clause, which would apply, should they come up against Manchester United in the final.

Sanchez has started four out of the last six Serie A matches for Inter, with a goal and five assists to his name.
