Alexis Sanchez can leave Inter as he is looking to join his former club. The Chilean scored a goal and provided an assist against Cagliari. The Chilean still has quality but he is getting less game time under Inzaghi. The Italian prefers Dzeko and Lautaro as a pair in big games. And he likes to bring Correa in the 2nd half who has that quality to change the game. So Sanchez is down in the pecking order and hence wants to move to Barcelona.
The Blaugrana want to sign a winger in this winter transfer window. They are looking to provide a swap move to Inter as they want Sanchez and are willing to give Luuk De Jong in return. The Dutch striker is on loan from Sevilla to Barcelona. He was signed late in this summer’s transfer window as their previous manager Ronald Koeman wanted him. But he is not getting enough minutes now under Xavi as he wants a more mobile striker. He needs someone who will be comfortable in playing on the wings too. So, Sanchez fits that role and hence Barcelona are planning this move.
Sanchez can leave Inter in January
Alexis Sanchez played an important role under Conte last year and helped Inter in their title triumph last year. But the Chilean has had some injury issues since then and is not able to give consistent performance. Also, due to his high wages, Inter are willing to sell him or send him on loan.
Sanchez played for Barcelona from 2011 to 2014 and Xavi was a part of that team. The Chilean scored 46 goals and provided 41 assists in 141 matches. Sanchez then moved to Arsenal and hit his prime. Barcelona will be willing to sign him as Aguero announced his retirement yesterday so they have space for a striker.
