Everton offered former Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez for FREE

Everton ‘are offered the chance to sign former Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez for FREE… with Serie A giants Inter Milan keen to offload the winger’

  • Alexis Sanchez could return to the Premier League and join strugglers Everton 
  • The 33-year-old is surplus to requirements at Inter Milan, who are keen to offload
  • Boss Rafael Benitez has already signed Vitaliy Mykolenko and Nathan Patterson

Everton have been given the chance to bring Alexis Sanchez to Goodison Park, with Inter Milan keen for the experienced winger to leave.

Both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Brazilian Richarlison could depart the Toffees in the future, with question marks over their long-term commitments to the club.

The Blues are currently fifteenth in the Premier League standings with 19 points, eight off the relegation zone, and manager Rafael Benitez is keen to keep hold of both his stars, as his side look to stave off a relegation fight.

Benitez could turn to Sanchez this transfer window to support his two main strikers. Bringing the 33-year-old to Goodison would be a huge gamble by the club, and a move which may not go down well with the Everton fans.

The Chilean was expected to help United back to the pinnacle of English football following his move from Arsenal in January 2018, when the Red Devils battled Manchester City for his signature.

But Sanchez, who netted 80 times in 166 matches in three and a half years in north London, managed just five goals in 45 appearances at Old Trafford, before moving to Inter, initially on loan, in August 2019.

The move was made permanent in a free transfer 12 months later, but Sanchez has struggled on his return to Serie A, scoring only 14 times in 86 appearances.

South American stars have never really hit it off in the Blue half of Merseyside, with James Rodriguez, who scored six goals in 22 games, lasting just short of a year before joining Qatar club Al-Rayyan in a permanent deal last September.

Sanchez’s experienced given Everton’s lowly league position could be a welcome boost for the Toffees, however.

Benitez has already moved swiftly to sign defenders Vitaliy Mykolenko from Dynamo Kiev and Nathan Patterson from Scottish champions Rangers to bolster his defensive options.

The signing of Sanchez, with his experience, could be a very shrewd move as it not only gives support to Benitez’s forward line, but also, act as a safe guard to the injury prone Salomon Rondon.
