It's been reported by Standard that Manchester United didn't include a recall option in the loan deal for Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan. 

Such a clause would have been useful at this point in time, given that the Old Trafford outfit currently has an injury crisis upfront, with Marcus Rashford set to be out of action for some time. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad is very thin at the moment, with Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku not replaced in the summer.
