Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez has been handed a chance to revive his dwindling career after agreeing to join Inter Milan on a permanent deal this summer.

The former Barcelona and Arsenal attacker embarked on a season-long loan deal at the Italian League side last year.

He scored four goals and assisted 10 others in 30 appearances across competitions so far - and he could add more after progressing to the Europa League quarterfinals with 2-0 win over Getafe.

Romelu Lukaku and Christian Erikson both scored a goal to propel the Serie A giants to the last eight stage of the competition.

However, Sanchez's move was confirmed by Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his side edged LASK to a 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Wednesday, July 5.

According to Sky Sports, the two teams seem to have reached an advanced stage of their talks which will see the 31-year-old leave the club on a free despite having two more years on his deal.

Sanchez joined United from Arsenal in a swap deal and became the club's most paid star with earnings around £560k-a-week.

The Red Devils were however still paying a bulk of the weekly wages despite being on loan at Inter, but that is about to end this summer.

When asked about a potential Sanchez move after LASK Europa League win, Solskjaer said: "I can confirm that he's agreed and we've agreed. "Alexis enjoyed his time there.

"They've liked him, so of course that's a good move for him. Wish him all the best. He's a top player, that we want to see play his best football.

"For whatever reason we didn't see the best of Alexis, but he's a top professional and we just wish him all the best."

Earlier this week, Inter chief executive Beppe Marotta told Sky in Italy that Sanchez would be signing a three-year contract with the club.

He said: "He is not official yet but unofficially he is ours for three seasons. We believe in him a lot and we are happy."

Reports claim Sanchez will receive about £55 million payout fee from United for cancelling out his deal with two more years on it.
