Ex-Arsenal and Man Utd star Alexis Sanchez has contract terminated by Inter Milan ahead of free transfer to Marseille | The Sun
ALEXIS SANCHEZ has had his contract terminated at Inter Milan ahead of a free transfer to Marseille.
The 33-year-old's three year stay at the San Siro is over after he and the club ended his contract by mutual agreement.
He is now free to pursue a move to France, despite proving to be useful part of Inter's title-chasing squad last season.
Inter confirmed online that they were ending the contract with Sanchez.
They announced on their club website: "FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that an agreement has been reached to terminate Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez’s contract by mutual consent.
"The Club would like to wholeheartedly thank Alexis for these last three seasons, in which the Nerazzurri won three major honours, and we wish him all the best for his future career."

The attacker is now expected to join Marseille and their new, fiery boss Igor Tudor.
Sanchez's first season at Inter was on loan where he chipped in four goals and got eight assists in 22 games.
In their title-winning 2020-21 campaign, he scored seven and assisted five as Inter finished 12 points clear of rivals AC Milan.
Even last season he still contributed heavily and made 27 league appearances as Inter finished 2nd.

The move to Marseille is just the latest chapter of Sanchez's long career.
After five years at Udinese, he moved to Barcelona in 2011.
He scored 39 goals in 88 games during his time at the Nou Camp.
The Chilean then took the Premier League by storm after a 2014 move to Arsenal as he rumbled defences with his sharp, direct movement.
He then joined Manchester United in 2018 but failed to make the same impact, scoring only 3 goals in his two years at Old Trafford.
Sanchez is the latest high-profile star to have his contract terminated following on from Aaron Ramsey last month.
