Why Alexis Sanchez could be staying at Manchester United this month
Inter have been keeping tabs on Sanchez for a number of weeks and were hoping to conclude a loan deal this week.
The European transfer window closes next Monday and the Nerazzurri wanted to unveil the Chile international before this weekend's trip to Cagliari.
However, Sanchez could now be set to stay at Old Trafford as United await the results of scans on Martial's thigh.
If the Frenchman is sidelined for more than just the short-term, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may veto Sanchez's switch to San Siro.
The former Arsenal man has yet to play for the Red Devils this season, with his last club appearance coming back in May.
