Inter forward Alexis Sanchez will be looking for a turning point in his Inter career in this evening’s Serie A clash with Cagliari, according to Italian media.
This from today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the Chilean must take his opportunities to cement a place in the team soon or else depart from the club.
Sanchez has had a number of positive moments at Inter since joining from Manchester United in the summer of 2019, but he has never consistently cemented himself as a starter.
The 32-year-old has played in 83 out of a possible 124 matches for the club in his time there so far, but only 31 of those were from the start.
Moreover, the forward has only played a total of 3236 out of an available 11,160 minutes of football since he made the switch to the Nerazzurri.
Clearly the Chilean has not yet managed to really make himself an indispensable part of the lineup at Inter and this is a trend that has continued this season.
Sanchez has made one start, against Empoli, and otherwise only found himself used as a substitute thus far, even when he has been fully fit.
The Chilean is set to be given the opportunity to prove himself from the start against Cagliari this evening, and he must have a positive evening against the Rossoblu as his time is running out, according to Tuttosport.
Sanchez is known not to be happy with his situation and limited playing time, and has been linked with a move away, and so he will have to regard playing against Cagliari as one of the last chances to get his season going before a move away from the club in January starts to look the more tempting option.
