    MILAN — Forward Alexis Sanchez has joined Inter Milan on loan after underperforming at Manchester United.

    Inter and United both confirmed the season-long deal on Thursday.

    While financial details were not announced, the teams are expected to both pay a share of Sanchez's hefty salary — the highest on United's squad. The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Inter will pay Sanchez €5 million ($5.5 million) per season with United covering the remaining €7 million.

    At Inter, Sanchez will rejoin former United teammate Romelu Lukaku, who joined the Nerazzurri in a club-record €80 million transfer at the start of the month.

    Lukaku was among the scorers as Inter beat Lecce 4-0 in its Serie A opener in coach Antonio Conte's debut on Monday.

    For the 30-year-old Sanchez, it's a return Italy after establishing himself at Udinese from 2006-11.
