Inter sign Man Utd flop Sanchez on free transfer


Aug 6, 2020

The Chilean has made his move to Serie A a permanent one after a disappointing spell at Old Trafford, with the 31-year-old having agreed to a pay cut

Alexis Sanchez has signed for Inter on a three-year deal after Manchester United agreed to tear up his contract.

“I can confirm we have agreed [a deal for Sanchez to leave]. Alexis enjoyed his time there, they have liked him so that’s a good move for him,” he said. 

“We wish him all the best and he is a top player who we want to see play his best football. For whatever reason we didn’t see the best of him here, he’s a top professional and we wish him all the best.”

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed the move on Wednesday and claimed that Sanchez is an important part of their squad moving forward.

“We believe in him, that he can be a strong part of this squad and are happy to have concluded this deal,”.

Conte added on the signing: “The Sanchez operation has been an excellent move by the club. We deserve it.

“He came at a bad moment in his career and with us he immediately got injured. We waited for him and he is now doing well. It is fair that we are the ones that can now enjoy him.”

Sanchez could be reunited with his former United team-mates soon, with both teams currently on course to meet in the Europa League final on August 21 in Cologne.

United face Copenhagen in the quarter-final in Germany on Monday before a possible semi-final clash with Olympiacos, Wolves, Sevilla or Roma.

Inter, meanwhile, are due to face either Rangers or Bayer Leverkusen in the quarters, before a last-four meeting with either Shakhtar Donetsk, Eintracht Frankfurt or Basel.
