Alexis Sanchez shares his experience after leaving Arsenal to join Manchester United

Alexis Sanchez shares his experience after leaving Arsenal to join Manchester United”

The Chile global will spend this season on loan at Inter Milan having managed to leave the Premier League giants after 18 months of misery.

The 30-year-old forward added: "I wanted to join them [Manchester United] and win everything". "No, I don't regret going to Manchester United".

"I want to play".

If they (United) would let me play I'll do my best. "Sometimes I'd play 60 minutes then I wouldn't play the next game - and I didn't know why".

The former Barcelona player netted as many as 80 goals in 166 matches for Arsenal in a time span of almost four years.

Sanchez was signed with United second in the Premier League and aiming to close the gap on local rivals Manchester City, who were also interested in reuniting Sanchez with his former boss at Barcelona Pep Guardiola.

However, he failed to replicate the form he showed at the Emirates as he scored just five goals in 45 games for the Red Devils.

He picked up interest in the former Leicester City defender but he failed to bring the England worldwide to the Etihad Stadium, no thanks to United's swift desire to have him.

It will be genuinely intriguing to see how Sanchez fares at Inter Milan, to see whether whatever it is weighing the forward down - like a auto going at 50mph with its handbrake still on - derives from United or something deeper, something more indelible.

At the last count, Sanchez netted only two times in 27 matches for Man United last campaign, but enjoyed a decent run as Chile reached the 2019 Copa America semi-finals this summer, scoring twice.

A year of regular first-team football can obviously do wonders for any players but the return of Alexis Sanchez will largely depend on one factor - Daniel James.

"I felt fine", he said. "You need to ask him this question, not me", Sanchez concluded.
