Alexis Sanchez's Manchester United Career Worked Out At Around £28,800 Per Touch Of The Ball

Alexis Sanchez's Manchester United Career Worked Out At Around £28,800 Per Touch Of The Ball

After costing more than £40 million in wages, Alexis Sanchez's time as a Manchester United player is officially over.

The 31-year-old, who has spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Inter Milan, scoring four times in 29 appearances, penned a three-year deal with the Italian side on Thursday morning after weeks of negotiations.

Although Inter boss Antonio Conte has described the free transfer as a "very good move" for the club, many United fans will see the deal as a major relief.

Sanchez only managed to find the net on five occasions for the Reds in 45 outings and, for the majority of his time at Old Trafford, failed to live up to the £391,000 per-week wage packet.

In fact, Football Leaks revealed that there were a number of clauses in Alexis' contract at United, including a sum of £75,000 for every game he started and a £1.1 million annual signing on fee.

The club also promised him £2 million for 40 goals and assists in a season, and a £1 million bonus if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side win the Champions League. Of course, that didn't happen.

The money involved in the deal was astronomical and following the announcement of his move to Inter, author Duncan Alexander summed it up perfectly .

Alexis Sanchez Reveals He Wanted To Return To Arsenal After His First Training Session At Manchester United

It's fair to say the expectation when Sanchez finally signed on the dotted line at Manchester United, after months of rumours and negotiations, was so high, especially after 'that' piano announcement video .

He joined United in January 2018 from Arsenal in a deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move across to London.

But ultimately, Sanchez didn't really do much apart from scoring three league goals and taking a few pictures with his dogs, Atom and Humber.
