Chilean international Alexis Sanchez spent 18 months at Old Trafford, scoring only five goals in 45 appearances for the Red Devils.

After joining Internazionale Milan on a season-long loan from Manchester United, Chilean international Alexis Sanchez doesn’t regret his time with the Red Devils.

He joined them last year, spending 18 months at Old Trafford, scoring five goals in 45 matches played.

“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United,” he was quoted by ESPN.

“It’s the club that’s won the most in England.”

“When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic — I was happy there — but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something,” he added.

“I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.”

Sanchez explained: “I think that I’m happy when I play for my national team.”

“I was happy at Manchester United too, but I’ve always said to my friends I want to play.”

“If they would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game — and I didn’t know why,” the new Inter signing concluded.
