Manchester United may be forced to pay a substantial amount if Alexis Sanchez is to end his nightmare at Old Trafford after revealing the true scope of his contract details.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to get rid of the 30-year-old, who made a wretched appearance at United and scored only five goals in 45 games.
He was knocked out of the squad for concerns over his fitness for the team's 4-0 win against Chelsea in the opening game of the season, and was reported to be catching up in a training field with Mason Greenwood this week.
Due to his astronomical income, it is not an easy task to get him out of the club.
According to The Daily Mail, Sanchez receives a staggering base salary of £ 300,000 a week and a net payment of £ 100,000 a week from a £ 5 million image deal deal.
In addition, United will have to pay its agent Fernando Felicevich GBP 5 million in brokerage fees during the course of the contract, which together with additional premiums will result in a total of GBP 560,000 per week.
No wonder, then, that there are currently no clubs willing to take the risk of signing a badly wounded and outdated Sanchez, and United may need to pay at least part of his salary to get rid of him bring books.
His most likely goal seems to be Italy, with Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli tied for a change, but none of them can afford to pay a transfer fee or match Sanchez's extravagant salary.
Just over two weeks before Italy's transfer window slams on September 2, the time has come to close a deal for Sanchez.
It remains to be seen if he is involved in the United team, which will compete against wolves in Molineux on Monday night.
