Inter Milan look set to lose both Alexis Sanchez and Victor Moses before the end of their season because Manchester United and Chelsea haven’t given them permission to play.
Both players have been on loan at the San Siro this term and have agreed deals with their respective Premier League clubs to allow them to complete the Serie A campaign.
According to Sky Sport Italia though, the agreement does not include playing in the Europa League, which is set to be played to its conclusion in August.
Inter are set to play Getafe in the last-16 of the competition, which will commence when the Italian league season has finished.
United are paying a portion of Sanchez’s massive £400,000-per-week wages while he is on loan at Inter and were believed to be keen to keep him on next season if possible.
Alexis Sanchez has spent the season on loan at Inter
That is despite the Chile international having struggled with injury for most of his time with the Nerazzurri and having been limited to just 10 appearances in Serie A.
With the Red Devils still involved in Europa League competition too, there is potential for the two teams to meet in the latter stages.
United hold a 5-0 first-leg advantage over LASK, after playing in one of the final games before the coronavirus shutdown.
Victor Moses will return to Chelsea before the end of the season
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested previously that Sanchez could have a future at Old Trafford, though he is not registered in their competitive squads, therefore would be ineligible to play this season.
Nigeria international Moses is also set to return to his club, with the Chelsea man’s loan agreement coming to an end after the Serie A season.
Antonio Conte is understood to be desperate to reach an agreement with both United and the Blues to allow the two players to feature in European competition as he looks to secure the trophy.
