Sanchez caused a great disappointment at Man Utd
Man Utd paid no fee to recruit Sanchez, when he was part of a player exchange contract with Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal in January 2018. Despite being given the legendary No.7 shirt at Old Trafford, Sanchez’s contribution is very limited.
Sanchez still has a two-year contract with Man Utd, with a total value of up to 72 million. However, according to sources from Sky Italy, he will sign an official contract with Inter for three years, right this week.
Inter paid Sanchez $ 144,000 a week last season (the rest was contributed by Man Utd). The Italian team is believed to be willing to take over Sanchez’s more than $ 600,000, provided that Man Utd released the player for free.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Sanchez will leave Man Utd and wished his former student success in Italy.
Solskjaer confirmed Sanchez will leave MU
Man Utd coach wishes Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez to regain his top form in the next three years at Inter. Earlier this week, Inter sports director Beppe Marotta told Sky Italy that Sanchez will sign an official three-year contract with Inter.
