Alexis Sanchez: Chile Forward Completes Inter Milan Loan Move

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has joined Inter Milan on a season long loan till 30 June 2020.

The Chile international, 30, will link up with ex-United team-mate Romelu Lukaku, the striker having joined Antonio Conte’s Serie A side for £74m this summer.

He is the highest earner at Old Trafford, and it is believed United are subsidising his wage – around £400,000 a week – to allow the move to Inter.

Sanchez has had a disastrous 19 months at Old Trafford since leaving Arsenal in January 2018, scoring just five times in 45 appearances.

He scored twice last season and only once in the Premier League and, had he stayed at the club, would have predominantly played in the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to give more opportunities to teenage forward Mason Greenwood, who has made three substitute appearances so far this season.
