Chile international Alexis Sanchez has said that he is looking forward to challenging for the Champions League trophy with Inter Milan this season. The 30-year-old made the move to the Nerazzurri on a season-long loan from Manchester United this summer and he recently scored his maiden goal during the 3-1 league triumph over Sampdoria.
ESPN pundit Mark Ogden has said that Manchester United missed out on a no-brainer signing in the form of Mario Mandzukic from Juventus. The Red Devils had agreed on a deal worth £14m with the Bianconeri for the experienced striker but a deal surprisingly failed to materialise before the Premier League transfer deadline.
“We must not let ourselves be overcome by these five victories. Other teams are ahead in terms of knowledge”. Those were the words of new Inter boss Antonio Conte after a 1-0 win over Lazio.
Since then Inter have gone on to maintain a perfect record in Serie A this season, notching an important and hard fought win away to Sampdoria at the weekend. That makes it six wins from six in Serie A.
Its no secret Manchester United are failing this season. After West Ham’s beatdown over the weekend of the 20th of September, supporters simply don’t know if there is any hope for the Red Devils and many are questioning where Ole Gunnar’s loyalties lie and where the manager plans on taking the team from here into the new year.
Being in the Premier League entering the 2020 season, there is massive publicity surrounding each and every game.
TalkSPORT pundit Andy Goldstein has said that Manchester United made the wrong choice to sanction the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan without bringing in a replacement. The Belgium international was touted to head to the Serie A throughout the summer and the deal eventually materialised before the English transfer deadline.
Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has revealed that there was interest from Chelsea in signing him during the 2018 summer transfer window. The Italy international had been touted for a reunion with Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge last year but the same did not happen after he decided to fight for his future with the Bianconeri.
