Alexis Sanchez in cheeky dig at Man Utd as he hails Inter’s desire to win after free transfer to San Siro

ALEXIS SANCHEZ took a dig at Manchester United after completing his move to Inter Milan.

The 31-year-old striker, said to have got a £9m pay-off to get his £505,000-a-week wages off the books, suggested his new club had more desire to win something big.

The Chilean striker, who spent this season on loan at the Serie A club, took to social media to aim a parting shot at United.

He said: "I'm really happy to be staying here with you, Inter fans.

“I’ve found a family here and the staff are great.

"It's a group where there's a real desire to win something big.

"People here want to fight together as a team to give the club the success it deserves."

Sanchez will go down as the most expensive flop in United's history.

The South American's mega wages meant he was never accepted by his team-mates when he did so little on the pitch.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to get shot of him rather than try and integrate him back in his squad for the remaining two years of his contract.

The former Barcelona striker completely failed to show the form which made him a star at Arsenal.

In his social media post celebrating his permanent move, Sanchez added: "I'm hungry and I want to win. My goal is to make all the fans happy.

"I'm here to win and I'm happy that I'm staying here at Inter."

Sanchez has been injured for part of this season at Inter.

But since the resumption during lockdown he has looked fitter and stronger as he tried to secure a permanent move to Italy.

Sanchez could have picked up £52m in wages had he stayed for the last two years of his deal at Old Trafford - but he wanted out and agreed a £9m pay-off last week.
