Former Manchester United teammates have reunited at Inter Milan as Alexis Sanchez joined Inter on a season-long loan deal in August after 19 months at Old Trafford, while Romelu Lukaku signed a five-year deal with the Serie A side.

After making his loan move, Sanchez has revealed the role that Lukaku played in Manchester United exit.

“Inter is a great team,” Sanchez said. “When I was at Udinese, the Nerazzurri won the treble and at that time for me they were the biggest team in Italy. Playing against them was very difficult. I am very happy to be back in Serie A. I am here to win something.

“Romelu is a very good player. He is my friend and we talk every day. You can see that he is happy to be at Inter and he always wants to win. He convinced me to come to Inter.”

“The team is very much united and this is important if you want to win. The fans have not seen the team win anything for many years so there is great hunger to win.”
