Man Utd flop Alexis Sanchez ends Old Trafford hell as Inter Milan confirm free transfer
ALEXIS SANCHEZ will finally – and officially – leave Manchester United tomorrow morning.
The £505,000-a-week flop's horror spell finally ends after Inter Milan confirmed they had signed him for free.
Chile star Sanchez, 31, has been on loan with Antonio Conte's side all season and looked much more the player United expected when they signed him in January 2018.

His future now lies in Serie A, with Old Trafford chiefs no doubt relieved to get his massive salary off the wage bill.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta confirmed Sanchez had put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
Speaking before Inter's Europa League clash against Getafe in Germany, he said: "Unofficially, we’ll make it official tomorrow morning.
"The player is entirely owned by Inter. We have a contract with him for three seasons.
"We believe in him, that he can be a strong part of this squad and are happy to have concluded this deal."
Sanchez's new deal is expected to net him around £135,000 a week after tax.
He cost United £20million per Premier League goal after his swap deal with then-Arsenal man Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
That now has to be seen as one of the worst bits of business in the club's history.
In 18 months, Sanchez, who was signed by Jose Mourinho, managed just three Premier League goals – and five goals in total.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was desperate to offload him last season but no one was willing to pick up his wages.
Eventually, Man Utd allowed Sanchez to join Inter Milan on a season-long loan.
But even then, the Serie A giants were only willing to contribute around 20 per cent of his wages, at £110,000 a week in total.
In the 49 weeks Sanchez has been in Italy, Inter have paid him just £5.4m, with Man Utd paying the remaining £19.4m of wages owed.
That means, since moving to Old Trafford, Sanchez has been paid a total sum of £59.3m by Man Utd.
Making a saving on that huge outlay will allow United to go for it in the transfer market.
They appear close to landing England and Borussia Dortmund winder Jadon Sancho for around £100m.
