Sanchez confirms Inter move with farewell message to Man Utd

Alexis Sanchez has said a fond farewell to his Manchester United teammates with his move to Inter Milan on the brink of being announced.

The Chilean – who has not been involved in either of United’s opening three Premier League matches – has been a huge flop at Old Trafford, but will hope to revitalise his career with a temporary stint back in Italy with Inter Milan.

The incredible cost of sending the Chilean out on loan to the Nerazzurri for United has been revealed in a report.

With the player arriving in Italy overnight, Sanchez underwent a medical with the club on Thursday and is expected to be confirmed as an Inter player imminently.

He will link up with former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Inter in a £73m deal earlier in the summer.

Posting a picture with some of his United teammates on his Instagram account, Sanchez said: “Good luck for the rest of the season @manchesterunited.”

Sanchez flopped badly at United, scoring just three times in 18 appearances from his arrival until the end of the season. The season after fared even worse, with the player failing to command a regular shirt and managing just two goals in 37 appearances, during which time Mourinho was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It even led to claims by Gary Neville that there must be two Alexis Sanchez’s, with the one at United “an imposter”.

However, with the deal set to be announced shortly, Sanchez will hope to rediscover the form that made him one of European football’s most feared stars during his time back in Serie A.
