Alexis Sanchez: Former Man Utd and Arsenal striker terminates Inter Milan contract to become a free agent | Transfer Center News
Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez has terminated his contract with Inter Milan to become a free agent, with Marseille keen to sign him.
Sky in Italy understands that the Serie A side have reached an agreement with Sanchez on the severance package of his contract which was originally due to expire next summer, and he will now be free to join a new club.
The 33-year-old joined Inter permanently on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2020, following a successful one-season loan spell the previous season.
He failed to find a starting spot and was mainly used as a substitute by Antonio Conte and Simone Inzaghi.
The Chilean won the Italian Super Cup at Inter in January with a last-second goal in extra time to beat rivals Juventus 2-1, while winning Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
However, Romelu Lukaku’s return to the club paved the way for Sanchez’s exclusion from Inzaghi’s squad.
Sanchez’s high salary proved to be a stumbling block for potential entrants like Paulo Dybala, who eventually joined Roma.
