Alexis Sanchez Bids Farewell To Manchester United Teammates Before Jetting Off To Join Inter Milan

Alexis Sanchez posted a farewell message to his Manchester United teammates after sealing a move to Inter Milan.

The 30-year-old striker, who spent three seasons in Serie A with Udinese from 2008 to 2011, has agreed to join the Nerazzurri on loan.

The Chilean brings to an end a torrid 18 months at Old Trafford where he scored just five goals in 45 appearances following his arrival from Arsenal.

Posting a picture with some of his United teammates on his Instagram account, Sanchez said: ‘Good luck for the rest of the season @manchesterunited.’

He will now link up with former United striker Romelu Lukaku who left the club in a £73million deal this summer.

Sportsmail reported earlier, however, that Sanchez will still be United’s second-highest earner despite being on loan to Inter.

It is understood that the 30-year-old pockets an eye-watering £400,000 a week, before bonuses, at United after signing from Arsenal last January.

Inter have agreed to pay close to £4.5m of the Chile international’s £21m annual salary, meaning United will have to subsidise a significant portion of his wages.
