WHAT'S HAPPENED? Having departed the Nerazzurri ahead of the 2022-23 season after agreeing to mutually terminate his contract, the Chile international has now secured a remarkable return to Serie A following a term in Ligue 1.

The 34-year-old, who previously joined Inter on loan from Manchester United before making a permanent transfer, enjoyed a lucrative first spell, winning Serie A, Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana honours.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sanchez's arrival is the latest new face brought into the fold by Simone Inzaghi this term, with Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Yann Sommer among their other captures.

In addition, the forward will bring some much-needed veteran experience to a squad that has seen several of its most decorated players, including Samir Handanovic, Edin Dzeko, Marcelo Brozovic and Milan Skriniar, all depart during the off-season.
