Italian Serie A: Alexis Sanchez back sooner than expected for Inter Milan?

Alexis Sanchez's recovery after an ankle operation is on track and the Inter striker could return sooner than expected. Sanchez suffered a broken ankle and tendons after playing for Chile against Colombia in October. The surgery was inevitable and immobilized for a period of three months. A blow that has spoiled his debut under the Nerazzurri jersey following his loan from Manchester United.

Inter Milan's chief of medical services, Piero Volpi, told La Cuarta that he was pleased with how and how quickly Sanchez was recovering and that he saw him retyping the ball very soon. In any case, enough to play before the deadline that has been fixed. 

"It's a delicate injury, but the convalescence is going very well, the deadlines are within reach. Mid-January [this is the date of the return] but we'll see, Alexis could even come back a little earlier if all goes well. He has not worked with the ball yet, but we hope to hear from him if in the next few days everything is fine," he said.

The first match of Inter in 2020 will take place in Naples on January 5th, and then the Partenopei will welcome Atalanta a week later. 

Sanchez played only four games with Antonio Conte's team. He began his career with the Nerazzurri as a substitute in the 1-0 win against Udinese and Lazio at San Siro. He then scored on his only tenure in Serie A in a 3-1 victory in Sampdoria at the end of September. It was a match where he was also sent off. 

The former Arsenal man also played 66 minutes at Camp Nou against his former club Barcelona before making the selection.

Pushed out by Manchester United during all the summer, Alexis Sanchez seizes an exit door at the end of the transfer window. Sanchez was loaned for the entire 2019-2020 season to Inter Milan, as he tries to revive his career. But the season starts badly for the Chilean, having injured his ankle and missing the action for several months. At Inter Milan, he joined his former teammate at the Red Devils, Romelu Lukaku.
