Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is wishing Alexis Sanchez
“all the best” as the Chilean striker prepares to complete his transfer from Manchester United to Inter Milan.With a formal announcement expected on Thursday morning, the manager was asked about Alexis in the aftermath of the Reds’ 2-1 Europa League win over LASK at Old Trafford.
“I believe so, so I can confirm that [he is leaving],”
Ole told BT Sport.
“Alexis has had a good time over there [on loan to Inter] and he’s a good player, so we wish him all the best.”
Earlier in the evening, Inter’s CEO Beppe Marotta had tweeted:
“We will sign Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United on a permanent deal.
“We’ll announce the deal tomorrow with an official statement.”
Alexis came on as a 70th-minute substitute for Inter as they beat Getafe 2-0 in Milan, to join Solskjaer’s men in the Europa League quarter-finals.
Ex-United forward Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring and former Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen grabbed the second goal; another Reds alumni, Ashley Young, played the full 90 minutes for Antonio Conte’s side.
