Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi remains an admirer of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez and would like to keep him at the club, but would like assurances regarding the player’s physical condition.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the manager wants to be able to count on the fitness of the 32-year-old during the upcoming season.

Sanchez will re-join the rest of the squad and return to training next week along with several other players returning from vacation.

Once there, he will get his first chance to work with new head coach Inzaghi, and the Italian tactician will assess the player’s physical level, with the Chilean having dealt with injury setbacks in his two seasons with the Nerazzurri.

The manager is also worried about the amount of matches that Sanchez is slated to play with the Chilean national team, with six CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers in the fall before a further two early next year adding to the number of matches that the player could be involved in at club level.

Should the player be deemed able to contribute at a high level in spite of his fitness issues then his contributions will be welcomed by the new coach, but if not then he could find himself unwanted at the Giuseppe Meazza.
