After visiting a restaurant with agent Fernando Felicevich, Alexis Sanchez was asked about a prospective move to Marseille and is still unsure of his future. His Inter Milan contract is soon to be officially ended, and Marseille has been rumored to be interested in making a play for the attacker. After a brief and disappointing stint at Manchester United, the 33-year-old moved to Inter on loan in 2019 and made the switch permanent the following year.
Italian media members gathered outside on Wednesday night after learning of Sanchez’s plans for dinner with his agent. The 33-year-old was coy when asked about his plans for the future. He said:”I haven’t decided yet. I’m quiet. I want to play.” When quizzed about his future at Inter, Sanchez stated it was “still early” to say goodbye to Inter fans and signalled that details are still to be confirmed, telling reporters they should instead be asking his agent instead.
Sanchez still has 12 months remaining on his deal at Inter, which is set to expire in the summer of 2023. A deal to terminate what is left of his contract is yet to be confirmed, but it is anticipated that the two parties will find an agreement for his release, with the 33-year-old attracting interest predominantly from Marseille, who finished Ligue 1 runners up last season. The Chilean was used mainly as a rotation arm by Simone Inzaghi last season and was expected to feature even less regularly following the loan return of Romelu Lukaku.
