Inter have offered Ivan Perisic to Manchester United in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports in Italy.

Sanchez has spent the season on loan at Inter and the Italian club are now keen on signing the Chile international on a permanent deal.

Perisic, meanwhile, was loaned out to Bayern Munich for the start of the campaign but the Bundesliga champions are not willing to sign the Croatia international permanently due to Inter’s £17m asking price.

According to Sport Mediaset, Inter are also put off by United’s £17m valuation of Sanchez and have offered Perisic to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in a straight swap.

Inter have already extended Sanchez’s loan to cover the remainder of the delayed Serie A season.

And Antonio Conte’s side now want Sanchez to remain in their squad for their Europa League campaign next month.

‘It’s an anomalous issue, considering the Europa League can be changed by the absence of certain players,’ Inter director Beppe Marotta told Sky Sport Italia on Sunday.

‘The situation has not been resolved yet, we are working to at least keep hold of him for the entire Europa League.’

After an ankle injury disrupted his season, Sanchez has impressed since Serie A restarted in June with three goals and seven assists in 12 appearances.

Perisic came close to joining Manchester United during Jose Mourinho’s reign but the club were unable to agree a fee with Inter.

The Croatia international has impressed during his stint at Bayern Munich this season with six goals and 10 assists in 31 appearances.
