Manchester United have announced that Alexis Sanchez has officially joined Inter Milan on a free transfer.
United made the announcement in a statement released on Thursday.
“Everyone at Manchester United wishes Alexis Sanchez all the best in his future career as he joins Inter Milan on a permanent transfer.
“Alexis moved to the Serie A club on a one-season loan in August 2019 and has made 29 appearances for the San Siro side, scoring four goals.
“Upon his arrival in northern Italy, he linked up with former United team-mate Romelu Lukaku and they were later joined by Ashley Young, with the trio playing their part in Inter’s second-place league finish following Serie A’s resumption.
“Alexis became the first Chilean to play a competitive game for United after moving from Arsenal in January 2018, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading in the opposite direction.
“The 31-year-old scored five goals in 45 appearances for the Reds, with highlights including two assists in the remarkable 3-2 comeback win away to Manchester City in April 2018, the opening goal in our 2-1 Emirates FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, later that month, and the first goal in the 3-1 FA Cup victory over his former club Arsenal at the Emirates in January 2019.
“Alexis could yet have a quickfire reunion with the Reds in 2019/20 with United and Inter both still in the Europa League, although the two clubs could only face each other if both make it through to the tournament’s final in Cologne.”
Sanchez joined United from Arsenal on 22 January 2018, in a swap deal that saw
Henrikh Mkhitaryan move the opposite way.
During his time at Arsenal whom he joined from LaLiga giants Barcelona, Sanchez won two Emirates FA Cup in 2015 and 2017 and the Community Shield in 2014.
