Sanchez joined Inter Milan for a season long loan deal at the beginning of the season. And had a wobbly start to his career at Inter after sustaining an injury during the first month itself. However, his return from injury didn’t look fruitful as the striker failed to score goals consistently and continued his bad form at Inter. He kept getting injured in between and failed to cement his place in the starting lineup.

Sanchez managed to score just 1 and assist 4 in his 19 games for Inter this season. A lot more was expected of him when Conte signed him.

Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United on 22nd January 2018 on a swap deal which included Henrik Mkhitaryan’s move to Arsenal. On his arrival, Manchester United offered Sanchez the iconic No.7 jersey, previously owned by club legends like George Best, David Beckham etc. And had been cursed since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club back in 2009. Several players tried to justify the iconic number but failed miserably.

Same was the case with Sanchez who joined United on the back of great expectations as he had one of his best seasons at Arsenal the previous year. But he also perished under pressure and failed to make an effect. He also started getting injured frequently which killed his moral.

During his time at United, Sanchez made 45 appearances for the club. From which he managed to score only 5 goals and provide 9 assists. The fans had very high expectations from a player of his calibre.


There is no doubt on the quality Alexis Sanchez possess. But currently he is going through a very bad patch and its only a matter of time he gets back to his best. We all know how lethal he can be when he is in his absolute best. He just needs to regain his fitness and work hard, good times are surely going to come for Alexis.
