Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez is once again on the move after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract at Serie A side Inter Milan.

The 33-year-old is now reportedly set to join French outfit Marseille after ending a mixed time in Italy that saw Sanchez score just 16 league goals in three seasons at Milan.

He will link up with a group of fellow ex-Arsenal outcasts at his new Ligue 1 club, with Matteo Guendouzi, Sead Kolasinac, and Nuno Tavares all currently based at the French side.

Sanchez has already agreed personal terms on a two-year deal at Marseille with formalities set to be completed between the two parties in the coming days, according to The Mirror.

The move will see Sanchez enjoy another season playing Champions League football after Marseille finished second in the Ligue 1 standings last season. They kickstarted their new 22/23 season with a 4-1 win over Reims on Sunday.

The Chilean was a regular under Inter Milan manager Filippo Inzaghi, making 39 appearances in all competitions last season as the club were beaten to the Serie A title by cross-city rivals AC Milan.

However, his lucrative contract was torn up after Inzaghi made it clear that the winger was no longer wanted at the San Siro.

Sanchez is keen to revive his career after a marquee move to Manchester United in 2018 ended in tatters, with the forward having scored just five goals in 45 appearances under then-manager Jose Mourinho.

He then helped end Juventus’ Serie A domination as Inter Milan lifted their first league title in 10 years along with winning the the Coppa Italia, and the Supercoppa Italiana.

A move to Marseille gives him the chance to help the French side end PSG’s Ligue 1 domination, with new manager Igor Tudor keen to bring his own style of football to the south of France.
