Inter Milan has agreed to sign Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United on a permanent three-year deal, the Serie A club's CEO Giuseppe Marotta said on Wednesday.

Sanchez joined Inter on loan at the start of the 2019-20 season following a disappointing spell at United where he scored just five goals in 45 matches.

Although the Chilean scored only four league goals this season, he seems to have rediscovered his touch in Italy where he topped the club's charts with eight assists as Antonio Conte's Inter finished runner-up behind Juventus.

“It will be official tomorrow (Thursday) in the morning,” Marotta told Sky Sports. “The player is completely ours and we have a three-year contract with him. We think he can be a full member of our squad.”

 

The transfer will also allow Sanchez to play in the rest of Inter's Europa League campaign after it advanced to the quarterfinals on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Spanish side Getafe in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Solskjaer confirms move

Speaking after United's Europa League win over LASK on Wednesday, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Sanchez was leaving the Old Trafford club for Italy.

“...I can confirm that (Sanchez is going). Alexis has had a good time over there (on loan at Inter) and he's a good player, so we wish him all the best,” he told BT Sport.
