Alexis Sanchez responds to OM’s interest

Inter Milan striker Alexis Sanchez reacted to Olympique de Marseille’s interest in him on Wednesday after a dinner with his agent Fernando Felicevich.

The dinner was not really secret. Several Italian journalists had massed at the exit of a Milanese restaurant where Alexis Sanchez (33) and his agent Fernando Felicevich had taken place, Wednesday evening. At the end of the meal, the Inter Milan striker was bombarded with questions about his future as his name was insistently announced by OM. He responded briefly and without revealing the progress of the file.

“I have not decide yet”

Has the time to leave Inter arrived? “Ask him,” he replied, pointing to his agent. “I am calm, he added. I want to play.” And win? “Always, I always want to win. Hey my friend, a lion is like that, I’m always waiting for something more.” “I have not decided yet”, he assured about his future, ensuring that he was always “happy”. He answered a final question, judging that it was “still early” to say goodbye to Inter fans.

According to Italian media, a meeting took place on Wednesday during the day between Piero Ausilio, technical director of Inter, and the Sanchez camp represented by Felicevich and lawyer Rocco Dozzini. They mentioned the termination of the Chilean international’s contract, a sine qua non for a possible departure to Marseille. No agreement was found but the positions would have come closer, according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. Other meetings have reportedly been scheduled to find common ground. Sanchez is tied to Inter until 2023.

Felicevich was recently named after the career of the man who is nicknamed “El Nino Maravilla” in the Chilean daily La Tercera. “He is a competition animal who wants to continue at the highest level, to compete for titles, to continue to win and to show that he is still valid, he added. There are some very good years ahead of us in the career d “Alexis”.

Pablo Longoria, president of OM, also mentioned the case of the former Barça and Arsenal star on Wednesday at a press conference. “Alexis Sanchez, you have to look at his history, he has won in all the countries where he has played, he recalled. We have to respect them (with Veretout, another OM target, editor’s note) because they are players under contract with other clubs.”
