Alexis Sanchez says his loan move to Inter Milan has helped him fall “in love with football again” after leaving Manchester United.
Sanchez was one of the most expensive transfer mistakes in history when he joined Manchester United from Arsenal in exchange for Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January 2018.
The Chilean was given the biggest wage in Premier League history for little return, and joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan in the summer.
“Coming to Inter was a bit like falling in love with football again,” Sanchez said in a recent interview with UEFA.
“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.”
