Manchester United are ready to pay half of Alexis Sanchez’s huge £26million salary, to secure him a move this summer, SportsMail reports.

The final decision over the Chilean’s future will be left to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but United are open to offloading the forward.

United chiefs are aware Sanchez’s £500,000-per-week wage inclusive of bonuses, will prove a major stumbling block.

So, it is understood they are resigned to paying as much as 50% of the ex-Arsenal star’s wages, to tempt another club to take him.

United’s preference is to sell Sanchez abroad, as there is great reluctance to see him join a top-six Premier League rival.

Sanchez has struggled since moving to Old Trafford, failing to recapture the form that led to United making such a massive financial commitment in 2018.
