Inter Milan have agreed a deal with Manchester United to sign Alexis Sanchez on loan, Sky Sports News understands.
The 10-month deal will cost Manchester United around £6m and Inter have not agreed an option to buy Sanchez at the end of the season.
The Serie A side are expected to contribute around €5m (£4.5m) of the Chile forward’s salary, according to Sky in Italy, and he is set to arrive in Milan on Wednesday for a medical.
Sanchez impressed in Chile’s Copa America campaign this summer, but is yet to feature for United this season after suffering an injury during the third-place play-off.
He did play in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Sheffield United as he continues his rehabilitation.

Inter already signed Romelu Lukaku from United for a fee of around £73m earlier this month.
Sanchez’s imminent departure will leave United with just Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as striking options for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to call upon.
United could be without Martial for a period of time after he suffered a thigh injury in their 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The transfer window for Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, Germany’s Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1 closes at varying times on Monday September 2. Meanwhile, League One, League Two and Scottish clubs’ can also do deals until September 2.
