Sanchez to remain at Inter despite injury as there's no Utd loan release clause

Alexis Sanchez will remain on loan to Inter Milan from Manchester United despite dislocating his left ankle on international duty with Chile.
Sanchez could be out of action until the New Year if he requires surgery, but United sources have confirmed there is no release clause in the deal that saw him move to Italy for the rest of the season.
Inter are contributing roughly half of Sanchez's £300,000-a-week basic wage and the Serie A club will have to continue paying their share whether he is fit or not.
The 30-year-old winger made just four appearances for Inter totalling 129 minutes before he dislocated the ankle and damaged tendons in Chile's goalless draw with Colombia at the weekend.
Sanchez will fly to Barcelona on Wednesday to be assessed by Dr Ramon Cugat, the renowned surgeon used by Manchester City who will decide if the player needs an operation.
United and Inter will continue to liaise over the treatment for Sanchez who is due to return to Old Trafford in June with two years remaining on his contract.
Inter confirmed the extent of the injury in a statement, saying: 'Alexis Sanchez underwent medical tests earlier this morning at the Humanitas Institute in Rozzano. Results revealed a joint dislocation in his left ankle which has caused damage to the peroneus longus tendon.

'The player will meet for further consultations with Professor Ramon Cugat in Barcelona on Wednesday, where they will seek to reach a decision on whether surgical intervention is necessary.'
