    Date published: Thursday 6th August 2020 11:20

    Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte says the Serie A side have got a bargain after sealing a permanent transfer for Alexis Sanchez.

    The 31-year-old terminated his contract with United by mutual consent, meaning that the former Udinese winger moves to Inter on a free transfer.

    United were eager to remove his £500,000 a week salary from their wage bill and Conte thinks Inter have got a great deal.

    “I think the Alexis Sanchez move is a great one made by the club. Considering the conditions we managed to get Alexis, it was a really good transfer,” said the Inter boss after watching his side defeat Getafe on Wednesday night.

    “He had come off two years when he was really struggling at Manchester United, then he got this injury with us and we took the time to get him back on track, so it’s only right that we are now able to reap the rewards of that effort.”

    Inter have now officially announced that Sanchez has signed a deal until June 2023 with the Nerazzurri.

    “FC Internazionale Milano announces that Alexis Sanchez will move to the Nerazzurri on a permanent deal for free,” the club said in a statement.



    “The Chilean forward has signed a contract with the club until June 30, 2023.”

    Staggering Sanchez stat

    Sanchez only contributed five goals and nine assists in 45 appearances for United after arriving from Arsenal.

    And Duncan Alexander has posted the staggering per-touch cost of Sanchez’s wretched time at Old Trafford.

    The stats man claims that each time Sanchez touched the ball for United it cost a whopping £28,800, since his arrival in January 2018.

    Despite his poor form at United the attacker has found his feet in Serie A, especially since the restart.

    Sanchez has been superb for Conte’s side, scoring three goals and grabbing seven assists in 13 Serie A games.
