Welcome senior Sanchez. Hope you and Lukaku team up, and do great things for us.

Well, let's start by saying that this is his last chance to revive his career. Alexis has been a great (borderline world class) player for the better part of it, but it's undeniable that his time in Manchester has cast doubt on whether he's still got it. One could argue that very few United players have managed to live up to the expectations in the post-SAF era, but 18 months of poor performances suggest some caution before boarding the hype train. *calmly heads for the ticket office*

All things considered, we cut a good deal (low risk, high reward). A loan + option would have been better, but I'm confident he will push to make the move permanent if this season works out well. Anyway, rumour has it he's already agreed terms with us for an additional 2 years at €6,5m p/y.

From a tactical standpoint, I expect him to be used mostly as a SS. However, his arrival could also be important in allowing us to switch to a 3-men attack in case of need. All this provided his legs aren't completely gone, obviously. Otherwise, he should just be deployed as close as possible to the goal in order to take advantage of his shooting ability.

In short, he's definitely not a "niño" any more; the real question is whether he can still be a "maravilla" (or, at the very least, good) for us. Prime Sanchez would take Serie A by storm, his United counterpart would soon fade into irrelevance. Which version are we getting? Too many question marks to make a prediction as to what he can give to our cause. Considering the conditions of his arrival, though, I'd say he was definitely worth a punt. Let's see how this goes.

Lastly, based on this exclusive footage of him hitting the streets of Milan, he doesn't seem to have lost his trademark footwork.

Double digit goals along with his old strike partner Lukaku would be awesome. Best of luck Alexis!

One implication of this transfer is that we are now able to play 3-4-3 if needed, thus justifying keeping Politano other than him just being the substitute for Lautaro.

MakavelInterista
29 Aug 19, 23:07
At the very least, we now have Lukaku, LM10, Esposito, Politano, and we add Sanchez.

All 5 are quite different players with different skillsets, I have a feeling we will see a lot of different striker partnerships throughout the season, with Lukaku starting most games, rotating Sanchez/Lautaro for the second spot, Politano first off the bench, and Esposito for blowouts, Copa games, and emergency starter.

Cautiously excited as there's literally no risk to this move and a lot to POTENTIALLY gain

I know this won't be the usual, but at some point for a game or two I want to see this starting lineup:


Lukaku
Sanchez - Martinez
Asamoah - Barella - Brozovic - Candreva
Skriniar - De Vrij - D'Ambrosio
Handanovic

That's how Conte set up his team at Chelsea first season. I mean that line up is almost replica with profile of players. RB moving to RCB, winger moved to RWB. 2 defensively good players as a CM.

ADRossi
30 Aug 19, 00:09
Our midfield is actually quite weak defensively. Brozovic is a very all-or-nothing player defensively, a huge tendency to commit reckless challenges. Barella is our next best option defensively but isn't even starting for us right now. Vecino is rather useless defensively minus some jogging that makes it look like he's trying.

Not defensive midfielders, midfielders who are defensively good. Brozovic is very good isn't it, also I though Barella was good (didn't watch him enough).

The premise of your statement is still correct, though. I fully expect to see a 3-4-3 at some point.

I think 3-4-3 suits the team too, unless midfielders keep bombing forward in which case 3-5-2 should work well. Like you said, I think Conte will mix it up, at least in the game when chasing or defending the game.

At least on paper, team looks good. Very good wingbacks would change this team completely. IMO that should be the area to improve next.

Vincenzi
30 Aug 19, 01:16
Honestly, what an incredible steal. We're getting him on a loan where we don't even have to pay all the wages. It's such a low risk, but has such great potential product. This is the guy who single handedly carried the shit out of a mediocre Arsenal team, and I really think his Man Utd mediocrity has less to do with his talent and more to do with atmosphere/locker room and how those things affected his motivation.

The man is getting a chance to revive his career here, and I'm optimistic in my belief that he can see that

delaurentis
30 Aug 19, 03:01
If Conte can revive Candreva like he did in his first game, then imagine what could be with Sanchez......

Choppin Onions
30 Aug 19, 06:11
I didn't see any of the Copa America this summer but from what I've heard, he was a lot closer to the early days of Arsenal Sanchez than the pile of burning rubbish he's been at United. It's my hope that coming back to Italy and getting over an awful time in Manchester will reignite the fire in him.

Dogen
30 Aug 19, 08:05
No doubt he should have become an Inter player in 2011 and it's been 8 long years since he left Udinese, but I'm all for nostalgia and revivals: if it were up to me, I would still take Falcao as Lautaro's preceptor and make of Yaya Touré the last-minute colpo di mercato/caliph of midfield.

As if Manchester in itself wasn't enough, Sanchez missed out on the Sky Blue revolution and ended up on the depressed/depressive red side of the city. No need for him to “look back in anger”, especially while sitting on outrageous wages, but his football "soul" certainly “slid away” in the last year and a half.

Let's hope he can find the right environment and motivations in Milan to somehow resurrect his career, or at least do a few wonders here.
If that doesn't happen, and before he angrily denies the accusations: with which teammate Sanchez will bet on Conte being sacked?
Let's bet on the bet.

Welcome and good loan, Alexis.

30 Aug 19, 08:11
If Conte can revive Candreva like he did in his first game, then imagine what could be with Sanchez......

We should not expect this effect on all the players. Candreva was left out last season, his desire to prove himself was there regardless of Conte. And just like that, only on the opposite side of the spectrum, we shouldn't rule out that some proven players start underperforming - Skriniar on his weaker side, Brozovic in a more offensive role that never worked well before, etc.

I dislike Sanchez and I don't think this was a good transfer, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt. But if he was brought in here to be a sub, 5mil a year is a really expensive bench heater. That being said, I appreciate Marotta's master negotiating skills to persuade ManUtd to pay majority of the wages.

Manchester United, circa 2017: We've created the perfect striker partnership between Lukaku and Sanchez. One big and strong, one small and agile. One a good finisher, one a great contributor to build up play. What could go wrong?

Should have signed Smalling too. He scored more league goals than Sanchez, since Sanchez signed for ManUtd. Also scored as many goals as Lukaku against top 6 teams.

Great deal if you ask me. Didnt cost much and Man Utd is still paying half/most of his wage with no obligation. Much needed addition as a rotation or back up forward.

I just hope Conte doesn't bench Lautaro for him.

Very good deal, would be marvelous with this buy option.

Anyways, we got man utd to pay more for a player that will not gonna be even in their squad for the whole season. No victory for united or it's fans with this one, that's for sure. Hard times for man utd fans (at least Lukaku deal was not as bad), but money is not everything in football. Just ask bayern fans.

Hopefully he will be more of a player he was before. Could be one of those Kolarovs or Dzekos coming to SerieA.

Good transfer for our circumstances.

This is almost the final piece in the squad. I would've been really pissed if we stopped our transfers at Lukaku, but adding Sanchez and getting rid of the massive logs like Mario and Barboba (specially selling the latter for a surprisingly high fee which is awesome) has turned our transfers into a positive one imo.

I have nothing against Sanchez' age or past. He's not old, has learned football in Serie A, and maaaaany players have managed to rise their careers somewhere else specially at Inter.

Also, no poll?

brehme1989
31 Aug 19, 09:31
Final piece would be a strong midfielder. Without it, it's going to be yet another tough season where we'll depend on the form of rival teams.

But this is finally a transfer that gives us quality that can win matches that seem unwinnable or lost, assuming he gets on the right mindset. Last player with this quality (but nowhere near in terms of overall ability) was Stevan Jovetic, which speaks volumes about how we acted in the mercato.

I would love to add a great midfielder and call it a perfect mercato, but I don't think it's financially possible at the moment because of the Icardi situation. Maybe after selling him we can (hopefully) think of SMS. That would be just perfect.

I like Sensi, Barella and Brozovic but yeah we need one more.

After watching the presentation video of Alexis Sanchez, I demand a series of retro clips by Inter Media House, all based on nicknames from the recent past: “El Tractor”, “El Jardinero”, “L'Imperatore”, “La Brujita”, “El Chino”, “Il Drago” and so on.

Also a “Matrix” trailer inspired by Biraghi's video, and much more.

[I would avoid mockeries and silly nicknames, for example “Tacchino Freddo” (Cold Turkey) for Dennis Bergkamp and “Ramarro” (Green Lizard) for the Cobra Darko Pancev: a sublime player and a bomber who don't deserve such a treatment.]

I'd urge people not to get their hopes up. This is a real gamble. His legs looked completely shot at United. Flashes of quality were there but he's also very wasteful.

Hopefully Serie A brings out the best in him. I don't want to see him used on the wings where his lack of pace is more of an issue.

Of course we're not going to play him on the wings; he isn't a wing back and we don't use true attacking wingers.

Agreed. But you never know it might help clear his mind a bit after the recent transfer process. I do agree with you it would be better he stay, but you never know it might be good for him. Spend some time away from the transfer drama, spend some time with national team mates, get some game time where if he has any rust he can shake it off before he starts playing in Inters league games etc

Mourinho: Alexis 'sad' at United

Jose Mourinho claims Alexis Sanchez did not succeed for Manchester United because he was ‘a sad man’ but is expecting him to ‘recover’ at Inter.

Mourinho took Sanchez to United in January 2018, pairing him up with Romelu Lukaku, in what was billed as the move that swung the Premier League title race in the Red Devils’ favour.

However, the two forwards have since moved on to Inter and the ex-Nerazzurri boss admits he failed to get the best out of the Chilean.

“[Lukaku always scored goals] for West Bromwich Albion, for Everton, for United,” he told The Telegraph.

“In terms of Lukaku, the move looks more like player ambition, player desire to change, than [the notion] he didn’t deliver anything for the club.

“Sanchez… I felt him [to be] not a happy man. And I think in every job you have when you are not happy it is not so easy to perform at every level.

“And maybe I am wrong. Maybe it was me who was not capable to get into him and to get the best out of him. As a manager sometimes you have the capacity to get the best out of the players and other times you are not successful in that approach.

“But the reality is that I always felt [of Sanchez], ‘a sad man’. So probably in Italy he will recover this. I hope he can. I always wish well to every player.”

Sanchez will get his chances but I'm in no hurry to force it when the starting duo and first sub have been good.
I don't think that Lautaro and Lukaku gel so well as everybody here deems. I wantto see Lukaku-Sanchez duo how will works.

Imo best fits are:

Lautaro - Politano
Lautaro - Alexis

Lukaku & Lautaro always as pure 9. And Alexis&Politano as support strikers.

No new UEFA rule is... If it isn't a voluntary touch then the goal belongs to the one who made the intended shot.. Sensi in our case
And Sanchez didn't make that intentionally

If Sensi's shot wouldn't go for goal and Sanchez changed the direction towards goal it would be a Alexis goal...

Tough to tell from the horrible angles provided by the broadcasters whether there was contact or not.

If there was contact, then yes, the second yellow was the wrong decision. But, since the ref was so close to the incident, I'm guessing there was no contact and so a yellow is perfectly justified.

Let's not cry wolf and complain about the corrupt refs in such ambiguous cases. Let's save that for more scandalous events like Pjanic's foul on Rafinha or D'Ambrosio's ball to the chest "hand-ball".

29 Sep 19, 08:54
Whereas I can't really blame the ref I'd like to point out that Alexis' first yellow was a bit harsh, since it was his first foul of the game, then at the second instance he didn't really dive and immediately start demanding a penalty... also a bit harsh.

CafeCordoba
30 Sep 19, 09:46
Yeah it was a dive so technically a yellow is the right call. Problem for me in this one is that if they carded every noticed simulation there would be double amount of yellow cards given in every match. I understand this was inside the penalty box so the diving is of course more strictly watched but still, it was kind of harsh indeed as there we no lying down, spreading arms, protesting to ref, but Alexis stood up immediately.

But nevertheless, clear dive so it was within all the rules.

That was a mistake, certainly. But the game, including offsides, had 33 fouls. Unfortunately, unless the ref gets 33 out of 33 decisions correct, we'll always be complaining about "consistency".

The Lazio match annoyed me far more tbh. Parolo and Lucas went in on the back of Sanchez's calf twice in the space of 3 minutes. Both were blatant yellow cards, but neither were booked.

Because it was a blatant dive. I feel like a tool sitting here trying to describe the difference between a slip and a dive but come on, we've all slipped or seen someone slip over on a wet floor etc. The sudden loss in balance, the retarded flailing of arms to catch oneself etc. It's a very spontaneous and spastic motion. Sanchez on the other hand just fell over. I thought his dive looked exactly like a swimmer diving into a swimming pool. Pretty comical really :lol:

Alexis Sanchez says Inter have made him “fall in love with football again” and that he is in the Champions League “to win it”.

Sanchez ended a miserable 18-month spell with Manchester United over the summer as he joined Inter on loan with option to buy, and the forward scored his first goal back in Italy at the weekend.

“At home they’re very strong, they have the security of playing there,” he told UEFA.com ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Barcelona.

“If we have one or two chances, we can’t waste them. I played there with United and we wasted three or four clear chances. If you want to beat Barcelona, you can’t throw any clear chances away.

“Coming to Inter was a bit like falling in love with football again. I already knew the Coach and some of the players, and I believe that the club are preparing something beautiful for the future.

“If I’m not mistaken, Inter haven’t won anything for seven or eight years. It was a bit like finding my love for football again, together with my desire to win something with this club.

“Any player would like to win the Champions League. You play in it to win it, not just to compete. I play it to win it.

“It’s beautiful for any player, and Inter must be excited about playing in the Champions League again.”

The 30-year-old played for Barca between 2011 and 2014, and he looked back on his time at Camp Nou with fondness.

“I learned a lot at Barcelona to improve myself. I had quality players who had won a World Cup alongside me, who improved their physique every day.

“Nowadays, every player must have that approach. When I arrived at Barcelona, people said it was the best Barcelona in history at the time.

“There were Guardiola, Messi, Xavi and Iniesta, who are not here now. There was Puyol, who for me is an incredible captain, the best I’ve had in my career so far.

“It was nice. You learn to play football differently there, with possession of the ball.”

A lot can change at Man Utd, which is why I wanted Inter to get an option on Sanchez, even if it was a bit high. Man Utd were desperate last summer to get rid of him, and a 20m option would have been easy to negotiate. But Inter got a bit greedy, and wanted Sanchez almost on a free (banking upon Man Utd's desire to get rid of the high wages).

Next summer, we may have Allegri on the Man Utd bench and then we can forget about Sanchez, specially if he plays well at Inter. I see a less than 1% chance of Sanchez being with us next season - if he plays poorly, we wouldn't want his wages and if he plays well, we won't be able to afford him or even have the option to buy him.

So the Sanchez loan is pretty much what it says on the tin - a 1 season dry loan and thats it. Lets make the best of that.

This may completely screw up our season, as now we have no backup for Lukaku and Martinez. And no, Politano is not really a backup striker, just like Candreva isn't one either. We desperately needed one more striker in the summer, and now we have to wait till January with zero back up for our strikers and 3 competitions to play in. One more injury or suspension, and we are down to 17 year old Esposito starting for us.

We have been almost taking it for granted due to our good start, but the race to stay in the top 4 starts today.


Serious Alexis Sanchez injury
By Football Italia staff

Inter forward Alexis Sanchez has suffered a potentially serious ankle ligament injury while on international duty with Chile.

The player, on loan from Manchester United, limped off after a knock to the left ankle during last night’s 0-0 draw with Colombia.

A statement from the Chilean Federation today confirms tests showed a “dislocation of the tendons” in his ankle.

More tests will be needed and he has been sent back to Milan for treatment with the Inter medical staff.

The wording of the statement suggests it is possible surgery will be required, depending on the results of the MRI.

The 30-year-old has only made four appearances in the Inter jersey so far this season, scoring one goal.

Not surprised. Hasn't strung together a consistent amount of games for almost 3 years now. Arsenal he would miss every 2nd or 3rd game for whatever reason, United was its own story, now he has 3 yellows in 90 mins of football and an injury already. I'm not saying its entirely his fault in context with his time at Inter, but in the bigger picture it almost entirely is imo. Guy is a liability and no matter how talented he is, comes with major baggage imo.

Beppe & Conte know this, and is exactly why we are low-balling United into paying majority of his wage. We will definitely be negotiating his redemption price from 25 down to 15 region imo. Whether the club or fans are still keen on him come next year is another thing though. Disappointing, but not surprising.

Puma
14 Oct 19, 00:23
If worst comes to worst and he fails to perform and impress at Inter, he can return to his Manchester United purgatory at the end of the season. Personally, I thought he played well when he teamed up with Martinez in Barcelona. I thought the way they played off each other was pretty good for a combination that had not really played together beforehand. I also wanted to see him teamed up with Lukaku but the way things are going, that might be some time away.

Reports state that he suffered a dislocation of the tendons in his left ankle and will in all likelihood require surgery. He'll also be out of action for a couple of months. Look on the bright side, at least we did not buy him outright.

This is starting to remind me of Radja’s season last year. Late/unfit to start the year. Starts to get into form, bad tackle leads to injury before he can hit stride. Only difference is it was Cuadrado in an intl match instead of Biglia in a derby.

Will be more like Vrsljko

Its sad... just when he started to look good in his last 2 games for Inter. I wanted to see Martinez+Sanchez vs Dortmund

I have been trying to think of positives that flow from Sanchez's injury. I am sad for him because I feel that he was starting to come good and could have really helped us. The only positives that I can think of is that his injury will highlight to our management how thinly spread we are up front and the need for another player to cover our front men. It may also give Esposito the chance to get some minutes. But apart from those "positives", Sanchez's injury is pretty disappointing.

If the injury was caused via brute trauma, i.e being striked? then I don't see how it's age related..

So...are we just sending him back to Man Utd then?

In response to your question, the answer is no. I read this morning that there is no clause in the loan contract that allows Inter to terminate the loan. So it is my understanding that he will possibly have surgery, recover and rehabilitate with us before returning to Manchester United in the summer.

The more I think about this, the more I am troubled by it. I guess we all love to dream: the prospect of a loan player coming to Inter, being coached differently and integrating better than at their parent club, excelling and making a difference with a view to possibly staying on next season.

Unfortunately for Sanchez, he is simply going to end up where he started at the beginning of this season with the only difference being an additional injury and more psychological baggage to carry regarding his future and usefulness (or uselessness).

I like Sanchez and im sorry for what happened, but if Conte really trusts Esposito and would play him the same playing time he planned to play Sanchez, maybe it will be good for us. Already in friendly games in the summer, it looks like Esposito is ready for the senior team. Now its his time to prove it in the money time.

Guys, Esposito is 17. The few minutes he gets will be good experience for him, but please don't expect him to make any significant contribution. The next 2 years (even in a best case scenario) should be looked at development time for the lil kid, ideally he should only play some coppa games and maybe get some regular football as a loanee at a small Serie A side.

I repeat, he is just 17. Zaniolo is 20. Esposito is yet to play for Azzurrini U21, he still plays for Italy U17. So lets keep the expectations real. We need a striker in January. Not selling Politano to get another striker already looks like a blunder by Moratta.

I would always take whatever Esposito gives. Indeed, I am sure he can't do worse than Sanchez. What would we miss (other the dry loan fee)? In his first full match, Sanchez got a red card and we almost lost because of him and Esposito would have done much better than Sanches against Barca.

Did you see how many tackles Barella face or Sensi? Fragile, somewhat finished players will be injured if not in the few minutes they play they will be injured in training.

In his first full match Sanchez was responsible for two goals. Big assumption to think Esposito would provide that at minimum. Not sure if trolling tbh...

And that's solely based on their age? Just from a few of his games, you can see that Sanchez is miles ahead of any of our player when it comes to technical ability and it's a shame that he got injured. No pressure should be put on Esposito given his age and experience, I am happy though that we are giving chances to young players; be it intentionally or out of desperation. It's just sad that our "best" striker is fucking Lukaku.

Zanetti: 'Sanchez is important'

Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti insists that Alexis Sanchez is an "important member of the squad," as they are waiting for the Chilean to return from injury.

After scoring for Inter in his first start for the club, Sanchez was injured playing for his national team and Zanetti reveals they are planning ahead with the Manchester United-owned forward in mind.

“Unfortunately, he injured himself when he just had become physically fit,” the Argentinian told CDF. “He showed a great desire; in Barcelona he had played very well. He played a great first half.

“It’s a pity that he got injured, but injuries are part of football. We are waiting for him, first for him to recover in the best way possible and then to represent that fundamental element we expect him to bring.”

Inter duo Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku have been in great form this season, scoring 14 times between them in Serie A so far. Tonight, they prepare to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, whilst Zanetti reveals the possibilities to see all three of them play together in the future.

“Alexis is a very important player, with great experience and a great personality. He is very quick and might be pivotal at any moment. He is important to us, because we have strikers who are all of different categories. When they play together, it works very well.

“They can easily play together, because they are all very intelligent players. They help the team a lot. With all the games we must play, there are no one who is back-up or reserves, everyone feels important and this is very important.

“All of them are important, but none is more important than the others. This makes the difference in the long run.”

Great statement by CAPITANO :proud: Glad that the environment is non-toxic this season.

Inter’s Medical Director Piero Volpi: “Maybe Alexis Sanchez Will Come Back A Little Earlier, If All Goes Well”

Inter’s medical director Piero Volpi spoke about the injured Alexis Sanchez in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Chilean newspaper La Cuarta.

“We’ve worked very well with Alexis. The injury he suffered requires special attention, but the recovery was very positive. The stages we set with Inter were fully respected. Do we keep the same date for the return? Yes, mid-January, but we’ll see later. Maybe Alexis will come back a little earlier, if all goes well. After the end of the year examinations we will have more certainty. He hasn’t come back to train with the ball yet, but we’re expecting some developments in the next few days. Everything is going well.”

The 30-year-old Chilean joined Inter on a loan deal from Premier League Manchester United in the summer, and only made four Inter appearances before suffering a peroneus tendon injury whilst on international duty. In those four games he scored one goal and provided one assist.

He was extremely motivated to do well. His passing was crisp and movement good. With his fitness improving and him getting used to real games ,we will see the real Alexis but the question remains will it be enough to keep him here next season. He has high wages and at the same time a silmilar player in Mertens is going to be available for free.

Manchester Utd can't recall Sanchez

Manchester United are unable to recall Inter loanee Alexis Sanchez amidst an injury crisis in attack.

The Red Devils are in a state of panic as it appears chief striker Marcus Rashford faces a long spell out on the sidelines with a double stress fracture to his back.

The English side sold Romelu Lukaku to the Nerazzurri last summer and also let Sanchez leave on a season-long loan to Inter, without replacing either striker.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer then contemplated bringing Sanchez back to Old Trafford following confirmation of Rashford's injury.

The Chilean has just returned to action for Inter following his own injury layoff.

However the Evening Standard reports that the Premier League side cannot bring the 31-year-old back to England due to a lack of a recall clause inserted into the deal.

Therefore, Sanchez will stay at San Siro until the end of the season.
This only shows, once again (if needed), how incompetent the Man Utd management is :lol:

It's standard loan, if it was young player then there would be option to recall depending on playing time. Sanchez is the player we were trying to offload, why would we insist on recall option when we were desperate to get rid of him.

Obviously we need attackers now but not Sanchez who has failed at ManUtd. He needed change of clubs, returning to Manutd is lose - lose for everyone.

Sanchez will be United's problem next summer. His salary is so massive it would make ZERO sense for us to keep him if we have to pay anything to have him. And in any possible case, he would have to reduce his salary like at least 30-40%.
