Manchester United are reportedly planning on permanent deals for Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling as they reject loan extension deal for both stars on loan.
Man United will not be extending Alexis Sanchez loan to Inter Milan and Chris Smalling loan to AS Roma despite interests from both teams to have the players stay longer.
The Red Devils have disclosed they are unwilling to have the two players spend more time on loan as only a permanent transfer deal will keep them at their current locations and the said teams are possibly not ready to cash in the amounts set on these players.

Having scored two goals in 34 appearances, Chris Smalling would miss out the Europa League round of 16 against Sevilla and Alexis Sanchez as well will miss out Inter Milan’s with Getafe amid the expiration of their loan deals.
The two players penned a one-year loan contract before leaving Old Trafford back in June 2019 and should have reunited with their team members but had to stay longer due to Corona virus effect that had the last day of the Serie A moved to the first week of August.
Both Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling have starred greatly on their loan spell with the Chilean netting 2 goals and assisted 7 times since the June restart and Smalling 2 times in 34 appearances as Sanchez traveled to Italy with an ankle injury that caused him returning to action fully in January.
Inter Milan are seven points behind league leaders, Juventus as they sit third and AS Roma with three games left, are fifth on the table.
