Alexis Sanchez has been told he can leave Inter Milan for nothing despite having just under two years left on his current deal.

I think it’s safe to say that things haven’t worked out for Alexis Sanchez ever since he threw a strop at Arsenal when he wasn’t allowed to join Manchester City on the last day of the window.

He was shipped off to Manchester United but things went so badly for him there, he was allowed to move for free to Inter Milan, just to get him off their wage books.

Now, the same thing is happening in Italy.

Inter Live now report that the Chilean forward has been told he can find a new club, and, to help that happen, Inter will not ask for a fee.

There was much gloating in Manchester when they signed Alexis from Arsenal, but the warning signs were already well established before he left London.

Alexis missed more games for United through injury in his first year at the club than he did when he was an Arsenal player, finishing his 18-month spell there with just five goals and nine assists in 45 games.

A far cry from the 80 goals and 45 assists he got with Arsenal in 166 appearances.

It was not radical at the time to suggest that a player, whose game relied so much on pace and power, had had his day and was on the inevitable post-30 slide.

Still, United chose to pay him £600kpw.

Players who score more than 20 league goals a season regularly are a very rare commodity and Alexis Sanchez has never been in that bracket.

His 24-league-goal, 30-goal-total season for Arsenal was the best he’s ever had as a professional.

The season after, he should have built on it.

Instead, he spent half the year sulking about not being allowed to move to Manchester City and not making the World Cup.

He switched off at Arsenal and hasn’t been able to restart himself since…
