Alexis Sanchez sustained a thigh injury against Bayer Leverkusen. And it makes Inter Milan are sweating. Inter have signed Ashley Young and Romelu Lukaku, as well as Sanchez from United in the last 12 months and the Serie A giants, are favourites to reach the final in their side of the Europa League draw.
Sanchez completed a permanent move to the San Siro last week, ending a nightmare stint at Old Trafford that saw him score just five goals in 45 appearances.
United have a slightly more difficult route but they are also favorites to reach the final, which would set-up a tantalizing affair against the two-time Champions League winners.
Namun, Sanchez’s hopes of starring against his former side in that scenario are under threat as reports in Italy have revealed that he sustained an injury in the final stages of Inter’s win.
Sanchez was United’s highest earner on around £450,000-a-week, which created many issues within the dressing room. Aside from that was the fact that Sanchez failed to deliver in a terrible 18 months at the club and he was loaned to Inter last summer.
Sanchez has impressed enough to earn a three-year deal at the club and he’d love nothing more than to beat his former employers.
