Alexis Sánchez’s track looks particularly hot at OM. According to the latest information from the Italian press, the Chilean is in the process of terminating his contract with Inter, a condition sine qua non to come to Marseille. He should receive around €4.5M for the last year of his contract. The Phocaeans cannot pay a transfer fee and, of course, cannot offer the same emoluments as in Lombardy.
However, an agreement has been reached between the striker’s representatives and OM. The two parties would have agreed a two-year contract with a salary of 3 million euros per year. Invited to react to his club’s signing market, Pablo Longoria has preferred to drown the fish and not say too much in order not to get the negotiations right. He simply recognized that the Chilean was a player “international level, very high level”. Last night, it was Sanchez who answered questions from Sky Sport Italy.
“I haven’t decided yet”
On leaving a restaurant in Milan, he wanted to express himself. “Is it time to say goodbye? I haven’t decided yet, you have to ask him (referring to Felicevic, his agent). I’m calm. How close am I to leaving Inter and if I still want to win ?I always want to win, a lion is like that, I always expect something more and I’m happy. I haven’t decided yet. If I want to say something to the Inter fans? Not yet, it’s still early.
If we still have to be patient, he half-heartedly admits that something is going on. After three years with the Nerazzurri, Alexis Sánchez, who scored 5 goals and made 3 assists in 27 games last season, is leaving. If the record with OM materializes, he would become the leader of the attack and benefit from more playing time, in addition to playing in the Champions League. It’s a matter of time.
