Antonio Conte was delighted to welcome the imminent news of Alexis Sanchez's permanent transfer to Inter after helping the forward recover from "the worst moment of his career".

The Chile international endured a dismal 18-month spell at Old Trafford before leaving United on loan at the start of this season, recoveringbothform and fitness at San Siro.

Nerazzurri CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirmed thesituation regardingSanchez'sfuturein a media interviewprior to the Getafe matchon Wednesday.

Later on Wednesday, Man Utd managerOle Gunnar Solskjaer also confirmed the impending move after his side advanced past LASK in the Europa League.

And speaking after a 2-0 win that sent Inter throughto the last eight, the transfer had raised head coach Conte's spirits.

"I think the Sanchez transfer is a very good move by the club," Conte told Sky Italia. "Considering the conditions in which we managed to get Alexis, it was a really good transfer.

"The club deserve credit because he came at the worst moment of his career. He arrived after two difficult years when he was really struggling at United and then got injured with us.

"We took the time to get him back on track, so it is only right for Inter to enjoy it and reap the rewards of that effort."

Sanchez was a second-half substitute against Getafe in what had been set to be the final match of his loan stint.

Former United strikerRomeluLukaku opened the scoring before half-time, with Christian Eriksen clinching progress to thequarter-finalswith a late second goal.

With his goal, Lukaku reached 30 on the season and joined an exclusive club of Inter strikers.

Diego Milito and Ronaldo are the only other players to have scored 30 goals in a seasonfor Inter over the last 30 campaigns.
