Former Arsenal and Brcelona forward Alexis Sanchez is eager to return to Inter Milan this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Chilean veteran has made absolutely no secret of his hope to come back to the Nerazzurri, but that Joaquin Correa must first leave the club.

Former Barcelona and Udinese forward Sanchez is currently a man without a club.

The 34-year-old spent last season on loan with Marseille.

It was an impressive campaign in France for Sanchez, as he notched eighteen goals and a further three assists.

However, the Chilean did not extend his contract with Marseille, which ran out at the end of June.

Therefore, Sanchez is currently without a club.

And while there is no shortage of interest in the Chilean’s signature, he has made his preference clear according to the Gazzetta. At the moment, Sanchez has completely prioritized a move back to Inter.

Alexis Sanchez Prioritizing Inter Milan Return

Yesterday, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta even admitted that Sanchez has contacted the club to indicate his desire to return.

The Chilean left the Nerazzurri last summer. He and the club agreed on a termination of his contract by mutual consent.

However, perhaps there is a feeling of “unfinished business” between Sanchez and Inter at this point.

That would certainly seem to be the case for the player.

The Gazzetta report that at this point, Sanchez is anxiously waiting to see whether a return to the Nerazzurri would be possible.

And whilst Inter do want to bring the player back, the current situation leaves him in a bit of suspense.

This is because Sanchez joining would be contingent on another player leaving – Correa.

At the moment, Inter are looking to offload the Argentine.

And whilst there are clubs interested in Correa’s signature, the player still wants a bit more time to make a decision. So everything regarding Sanchez’s return could come down to the future of Correa.
