MILAN – Alexis Sanchez is officially a new Inter player. The Chilean footballer comes from Manchester United on a loan until June 30th 2020. The Nerazzurri company welcomed him with the following press release.
"Tocopilla, Chile. A small town, not even 25 thousand inhabitants. Soccer on the street, with friends, without soccer shoes. Alexis was already the best and there, in the street, he lived there. To dribble everyone, obviously, but also to bring some weight home to help the mother. Small jobs, combined with extraordinary somersaults and evolutions that earned him the astonishment of everyone and some change.
His trajectory was marked, like a jump of his own, in the future. He was too eager to play soccer. He has always said this, practically from the day he was born, December 19, 1988. The mayor of his country gave him the first real pair of soccer shoes, the ones he used in his first experience in Cobreloa. From the Atacama desert to Udine, over 10 thousand kilometers away. A journey with two intermediate stages: first the Colo Colo (winning two titles), then the River Plate (victory of the Clausura 2008). Finally the landing in Europe, in Italy, at Udinese.
In Chile they had already renamed him the Niño Maravilla, the wonderful boy. Where it didn't reach with the centimeters, Alexis has always arrived with the ingenuity, with the amazing technique, with the speed. Three seasons in Serie A, with a positive performance and goal escalation. Sometimes overwhelming, so much so as to get the call from Barcelona: win a La Liga, a UEFA Super Cup, a Club World Cup, 2 Spanish Super Cups, a King's Cup. From Catalonia to England: go to Arsenal (two FA Cups, three Community Shield), marks so much; then, in 2018, he moved to Manchester United.
Meanwhile Alexis becomes a legend of Roja, the Chilean national team. Holds the record of attendance (130) and goals (43) with Chile, but above all puts the signature on the great successes in Copa America in 2015 and 2016.
Alexis Sanchez is the fifth Chilean in the history of Inter: before him Ivan Zamorano, David Pizarro, Luis Jimenez and Gary Medel. In the Nerazzurri he finds Samir Handanovic and Kwadwo Asamoah, his teammates at Udinese, and Romelu Lukaku, with whom he shared the last season and a half at Manchester United.
Football, in the life of Alexis Sanchez, has always represented everything: full joy and happiness has always connected them to having a ball at their feet. Now he will roll it wearing our colors: to him the embrace and the good luck of the whole Nerazzurri family. #WelcomeAlexis ”(source of the Inter website).
