Chilean Alexis Sánchez, striker for Inter Milan, arrived in Italy on Tuesday on a flight from his country, where he spent the last twenty days of isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Milanese club informed EFE.Sánchez, joined by Inter last summer from Manchester United, He had initially decided to stay in Milan, but, due to the worsening of the health emergency in Italy, he returned to Chile in early April to be with his family.The 31-year-old Chilean forward was the last Inter player to return to the Lombard capital, after the Uruguayan Diego Godín, the Slovenian Samir Handanovic, the English Ashley Young, the Danish Christian Eriksen or the Nigerian Victor Moses did so in recent days. The ‘Wonder Boy’ will now respect fourteen days of quarantine, in accordance with Italian regulations, to be absolutely certain that he has not been infected by the coronavirus. The latest decree of the Italian Government foresees that athletes will be able to re-train as a group from May 4, although this depends on the evolution of the pandemic in the coming days.Sánchez, who started his European career precisely in Italy, at Udinese, played 15 games and scored a goal this season. His year has been complicated by a serious injury he suffered in October in his left ankle tendon, which forced him to undergo surgery in Barcelona and to be more than two months off.
