Italian side, Inter Milan have completed the signing of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United on a three-year deal.
Alexis Sanchez left Manchester United on a free transfer to join Inter Milan on a
deal that will see him earn less than he does at the Premier League club.
Sanchez, who has been on loan at Inter since August 2019, will receive a small pay-
off from United after agreeing to waive the final two years of his £560k-per-week contract.
Sanchez’s departure brings to an end his disappointing two-and-a-half year spell
at Old Trafford.
After arriving in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal,
he went on to score just five goals in 45 games for United.
After confirming Sanchez’s exit, a United statement read:
“Everyone at Manchester United wishes Alexis Sanchez all the best in his future career as he joins Inter Milan on a permanent transfer.”
Sanchez will receive a payout from United for cancelling his contract, which still had
two years to run.
The details of the payout are unknown but the value of the remaining two years in
wages is around £55m.
His exit frees up United’s iconic No 7 shirt, the same number worn by Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund who is rumoured to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top target.
