Inter Milan want to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan on loan from Manchester United, according to reports.
However, the Serie A side cannot commit to buying the Armenian winger in the summer.
Mkhitaryan has an uneasy relationship with boss Jose Mourinho – with SunSport telling you the details of their bust-up.
Inter are keen on the former Borussia Dortmund star and want him in their side, say Gazzetta dello Sport.
But they cannot tell the Old Trafford club for certain that they can purchase him outright in the summer market.
It is believed Inter are handicapped by Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations – which means their funds are limited.
Unable to guarantee a permanent switch, it has been claimed that Dortmund may swoop for their former man.
SunSport told you how United are ready to rival Chelsea to sign Alex Sandro.
And they are willing to offer Mkhitaryan in return.
Bundesliga side Dortmund are also keeping tabs on Mkhitaryan.
They have a penchant for re-signing players they have previously sold.
Mario Goetze, Nuri Sahin and Shinji Kagawa have all returned to the club.
The deal could be even more smooth with United interested in a Dortmund player going the other way in defensive midfielder Julian Weigl.
