Inter terminate Sanchez’s contract


Inter Milan have terminated the contract of Alexis Sanchez by mutual consent. After joining Inter from Manchester United in 2019, the 33-year-old made 109 appearances across all competitions for the club and managed to score 20 goals.

Sanchez helped Inter lift the Scudetto in the 2020-21 season and also picked up Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia winners’ medals last term.

However, the Chile international made just seven starts in Serie A in the 2021-22 campaign as he fell down the squad pecking order under Simeone Inzaghi.

Writing on his Instagram story, Sanchez reflected on his time with Inter and thanked the club and their fans.

“Here I leave three trophies after 11 years. Thank you and good luck, see you soon,” he said.

Inter have also put out a statement wishing the veteran attacker luck in the next chapter of his career.

“FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached to terminate Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez’s contract by mutual consent,” the club statement reads.

“The Club would like to wholeheartedly thank Alexis for these last three seasons, in which the Nerazzurri won three major honours, and we wish him all the best for his future career.”

Sanchez, who also played in the Premier League with Arsenal, is now reportedly set to travel to France and sign for Marseille on a free transfer.

It has been suggested that he will sign a two-year contract at Stade Velodrome, where he will link up with two more former Arsenal players in the form of Matteo Guendouzi and Sead Kolasinac, along with Gunners loanee Nuno Tavares.

Sanchez enjoyed a cult status at Arsenal as he scored 80 goals and made 45 assists in 166 games, also winning two FA Cups in the process. However, he left on a somewhat bitter note as he forced through a move to United in January 2018.
