Alexis Sanchez went to Internazionale in August 2019, after the confirmation of Mauro Icardi’s move to France, to play for Paris Saint-Germain. The Chilean striker, whose loan finishes in the middle of this year, will not be purchased by the Italian club. With that being said, what will happen to him?!
Firstly, Sanchez will return to Manchester United, the club that signed him back in 2018, after a swap with Arsenal, who got Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the deal. After that, it is still unknown.
His numbers were pretty bad this season playing for Inter Milan, in 15 matches he only got 1 goal and 3 assists. His salary is high and a sequence of injuries completes the obstacles to a possible purchase.
According to the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, Man United would like to loan the athlete or sell him to another team. Alexis Sanches is at the age of 31 and, since he started playing at the age of 16, he is already a long time in the world of football. He passed by some important teams, such as Barcelona, but since he went to Manchester United he wasn’t the same as before.
Coming back to England seems an improbable option, once he is not in the plans of the Red Devils. However, other counties may be a possibility. Some sources claim that Sanchez is seen as one of the possible reinforcements for Atletico Madrid.
It could be a good option, once manager Diego Simeone has already worked with the Chilean striker, back in 2007, when both were at River Plate. And it is said that the hiring of the athlete pleases the coach since he already knows how he works. However, his absurd wages may be a problem, once it is too high and the Colchoneros don’t want to spend that much money, especially in these hard times.
Maybe the best for Sanchez would be to go back to Chile to retire playing for his childhood team, or even, to go to the MLS or the Chinese league.
