Arsenal hero and Man Utd flop tears up Inter Milan contract for new club

Former Arsenal hero and Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez has ripped up his Inter Milan contract to sign for a new club, according to reports.

Sanchez was a fan favourite during his four-year spell at the Emirates and the forward helped Arsenal win two FA Cups, scoring 80 goals across 166 games.

The 33-year-old Chile international moved to United in 2018 but failed to make an impact at Old Trafford – with five goals in 45 games – and he left in 2020.

Sanchez left to join Inter and returned to success with the Italian club, winning Serie A in 2020-21 before lifting the Coppa Italia trophy last season.

The two-time Copa America champion is under contract until June 2023, but Football Italia are reporting that he has terminated his current deal by mutual consent after weeks of negotiations and is set for a move to Marseille in France.

It is believed that Sanchez would not be a part of Inter boss Simone Inzaghi’s plans for 2022-23 and Inter were keen to move him on given he is the highest-paid player in the squad.

Before his move to Arsenal in 2014, Sanchez spent three years at Barcelona, winning La Liga and the Copa del Rey and he was also linked with a move to Everton in January.

If he joins Marseille, he will link up with former Arsenal players Sead Kolasinac and Matteo Guendouzi as well as Nuno Tavares, who is on loan at the French club from the Gunners.

Marseille finished second in Ligue 1 last term behind champions Paris Saint-Germain to qualify for the 2022-23 Champions League.

They reached the semi-finals of last season’s inaugural Europa Conference League.

Meanwhile, PSG have won the Trophee des Champions following a 4-0 victory over Coupe de France holders Nantes.
