Alexis Sanchez will return to Inter after Argentina game tomorrow. Full immersion is waiting as Conte wants him ready as soon as possible for Champions League debut and Milan derby
Alexis Sanchez is greatly motivated, confirmed by his first public interviews as an Inter player. The Chilean is on dry loan, it means that at the end of the season, his destiny will be re-visited and decided. Obviously, should he do well, it will not be easy to take him away from Manchester United. But let’s not look too far ahead because Alexis has not made his Inter debut and he has a great rival at Inter: Lautaro Martinez.
Il Toro was Lukaku’s partner for the first two matches: he scored a goal in Cagliari while Belgian had his stamp in both. On the horizon, after the break and beyond the match with Udinese, there is the Champions League debut against Slavia Prague while the second round will be a trip to Barcelona where Alexis played for three seasons. And then comes the derby.
In short, many difficult challenges ahead. Sanchez is in search of the best condition and will be freed after the friendly with Argentina’s Lautaro tomorrow in Los Angeles. Then, full immersion is waiting for him at Pinetina. Conte obviously wants the Chilean to be ready as soon as possible. Alexis already has a relationship with Lukaku but it is up to him to make it work in the best way possible to earn the future that he wants.
