Inter Milan are still hoping to keep Alexis Sanchez despite Manchester United rebuffing their attempts to extend his loan, though could struggle to pay his enormous salary.

The Chilean has been in good form since the Serie A restart, playing in all 12 of Inter’s matches – scoring three times and laying on six assists – and they had hoped to extend his stay.

About speaks
Speech is human vocal communication using language. Each language uses phonetic combinations of vowel and consonant sounds that form the sound of its words (that is, all English words sound different from all French words, even if they are the same word, e.g., “role” or “hotel”), and using those words in their semantic character as words in the lexicon of a language according to the syntactic constraints that govern lexical words’ function in a sentence. In speaking, speakers perform many different intentional speech acts, e.g., informing, declaring, asking, persuading, directing, and can use enunciation, intonation, degrees of loudness, tempo, and other non-representational or paralinguistic aspects of vocalization to convey meaning. In their speech speakers also unintentionally communicate many aspects of their social position such as sex, age, place of origin (through accent), physical states (alertness and sleepiness, vigor or weakness, health or illness), psychic states (emotions or moods), physico-psychic states (sobriety or drunkenness, normal consciousness and trance states), education or experience, and the like.
Although people ordinarily use speech in dealing with other persons (or animals), when people swear they do not always mean to communicate anything to anyone, and sometimes in expressing urgent emotions or desires they use speech as a quasi-magical cause, as when they encourage a player in a game to do or warn them not to do something. There are also many situations in which people engage in solitary speech. People talk to themselves sometimes in acts that are a development of what some psychologists (e.g., Lev Vygotsky) have maintained is the use in thinking of silent speech in an interior monologue to vivify and organize cognition, sometimes in the momentary adoption of a dual persona as self addressing self as though addressing another person. Solo speech can be used to memorize or to test one’s memorization of things, and in prayer or in meditation (e.g., the use of a mantra).
Researchers study many different aspects of speech: speech production and speech perception of the sounds used in a language, speech repetition, speech errors, the ability to map heard spoken words onto the vocalizations needed to recreate them, which plays a key role in children’s enlargement of their vocabulary, and what different areas of the human brain, such as Broca’s area and Wernicke’s area, underlie speech. Speech is the subject of study for linguistics, cognitive science, communication studies, psychology, computer science, speech pathology, otolaryngology, and acoustics.
Speech compares with written language, which may differ in its vocabulary, syntax, and phonetics from the spoken language, a situation called diglossia.
The evolutionary origins of speech are unknown and subject to much debate and speculation. While animals also communicate using vocalizations, and trained apes such as Washoe and Kanzi can use simple sign language, no animals’ vocalizations are articulated phonemically and syntactically, and do not constitute speech.

United agreed to let Sanchez remain at San Siro until the end of the domestic campaign, against Atalanta on Sunday, though just a few days later they are back in Europa League action against Getafe – a match the 31-year-old will not currently be able to take part in.

With United and Inter poised to meet in the final of the competition, the Red Devils declined to let Sanchez continue his loan – with UEFA rules allowing players to play against their parent clubs, unlike the Premier League.

Inter, though, could sign Sanchez permanently – or on another season-long loan with an obligation to buy – which would allow him to take part in the Europa League campaign and potentially face United in the final.

CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed Inter’s desire to keep Sanchez on Tuesday evening, though a deal will be difficult to pull off particularly if United play hardball over a fee.

‘It is not easy, he has a two-year contract with Manchester United, a heavy contract,’ Marotta told Sky Sport Italia before Inter’s 2-0 win over Napoli.

‘So we have to evaluate this type of situation, in addition to any negotiation.

‘It would be a shame if we couldn’t reach an agreement because we would like Sanchez both today and in the future, he is an excellent guy.’

Although United would have accepted a minimal offer for Sanchez earlier in the season just to get his mammoth wage bill off the books, it has now been suggested they think they can receive around £17million given his fine performances recently.

Inter would not be able to afford such a fee in addition to Sanchez’s salary – which is believed to be as much as £500k-a-week – so have reportedly proposed a swap deal involving Ivan Perisic, who has spent the past season on loan at Bayern Munich.
