Alexis Sanchez’s Man United exit imminent: Inter Milan to sign Chilean on free transfer

As confirmed by a host of reliable sources online this evening, Alexis Sanchez is all set to depart Manchester United for Inter Milan on a permanent basis.

Sanchez back on form

On the back of a dismal campaign with Man United, Chilean international Sanchez returned to Italy last summer.

The 31-year-old joined Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan on loan for the 2019/20 campaign, reuniting with Romelu Lukaku at the San Siro:

The attacker’s time in Milan, though, has since proven something of a mixed bag.

Sanchez actually enjoyed a decent start to life in the Nerazzurri jersey, notching a goal and an assist across his first 4 appearances.

However, just when he appeared to be getting things back on track, a serious injury picked up whilst on international duty in October saw Sanchez confined to the sidelines.

The 31-year-old damaged ankle ligaments during a friendly meeting between Chile and Colombia, an injury which restricted him to just a pair of Serie A starts prior to the COVID-19 break.

As such, the widespread assumption ahead of football’s return in June was that Inter were altogether unlikely to even attempt to make Sanchez’s arrival permanent, with the South American set for a swift return to Old Trafford.

This, however, was before Sanchez began to showcase fresh flashes of his brilliant best.

Recent weeks saw the former Arsenal man dazzle versus the likes of Brescia and Torino (over the course of which he directly contributed to 5 goals), with Sanchez having gone on to play a key role in Inter’s run-in, en route to a 2nd-place Serie A finish.

‘Total agreement’

And, based on the latest word stemming from Italy this evening, Sanchez’s sudden upturn in form evidently proved enough to convince the hierarchy at the San Siro that the Chilean is far from finished at the top level of the game.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano, both highly reliable when it comes to Serie A news, Sanchez is on the brink of joining Inter on a permanent basis.

A complete agreement is said to have been reached between the Nerazzurri and Manchester United, which will see Sanchez’s contract with the latter terminated.

As such, Inter will pick up the 31-year-old on a free transfer, with United not set to receive any form of compensation.

Crucially, though, the Red Devils will rid themselves of Sanchez’s massive wage packet, believed to be worth somewhere in the region of £450,000-per-week.
