'Sanchez belongs in Italy' - Inter winger is still an 'enormous talent', says ex-Man Utd star Veron


Alexis Sanchez Inter 2020

Former Manchester United star Juan Sebastian Veron has expressed his belief that Alexis Sanchez "belongs" in Italy, while insisting that the Inter winger is still an "enormous talent".

The Chilean was handed a four-and-a-half-year contract worth £560,000 per week at Old Trafford, after establishing himself as one of the most deadly attacking players in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium.

However, the 31-year-old failed to live up to the same high standardsin Manchester, as he only managed to score five goals in his first 45 outings for the Red Devils.

Sanchez was sent out on loan to Inter for the duration of the 2019-20 campaign after being deemed surplus to requirementsby Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and has gradually rediscovered his best form in Serie A.

The former Arsenal talisman, who made his name in Italy with Udinese before joining Barcelona in 2014, made a slow start to life at San Siro amid a string of injuries, but proved to be one of their top performers post-lockdown.

He helped Antonio Conte's men finish second in Serie A while reaching the latter stages of the Europa League, and was rewarded with a permanent contract on August 6.

Sanchez is now tied to Inter through to 2023, and Veron is glad that the experienced forward has been able to put afrustrating spell on United's books behind him.

The Argentine endured a similarly turbulent stint in Manchester between 2001 and 2003, before going on to spend two years on loan at San Siro later in his career.

Veron told a press conference at the 2020 Enel Cup: “I watched Sanchez play here at Inter, he’s got enormous talent and is fantastic for Chile.

“Personally, I had some ups and downs at Manchester United, but I was at my best in Italy.

"I believe a player really finds he belongs in one league more than another.I know I did and I think that’s true of Alexis Sanchez too.
