Manchester United has end their losses on Alexis Sanchez on Thursday by signing the Chilean footballer to Inter Milan on a 10-month loan deal with the English giants still on the hook for much of his £400,000 a week take home salary.
Manchester United had thought they were closing the gap on rival Manchester City when they beat their local rivals by signing Sanchez early last year.
The Chilean star scored just five goals in 45 appearances for Manchester United, while City won five major trophies, including back-to-back Premier League trophy.
Meanwhile, It was a total disappointment for a Sanchez who scored a goal in almost every two matches he appeared in for a three-and-a-half seasons for Arsenal and 47 times in three years at Barcelona before he join Manchester United.
Former United captain Gary Neville said: “I thought he would be a forward who would play all across the line, who scored goals and was tenacious, but he has been an absolute disaster,”
Manchester United was lured in by not having to pay a transfer fee in a swap deal that sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Arsenal, otherwise they should have been more careful before making Sanchez who was 29 then the Premier League’s most paid footballer on a four-and-a-half year agreement.
A lot of people are saying that Sanchez’s fast fall could be linked to burnout from representing his country in major international tournaments for four straight summers between 2014 and 2017. Does that make sense to you?? Drop a comment below, lets know what you think.
But before that, remember that after a rare summer off in 2018, Sanchez completed 90 minutes and scored only once in the Premier League last season, how about that?
