Sanchez joined the Red Devils in a sensational move from Arsenal in January 2018 and became the club's highest earner, but failed to live up to expectations after scoring just five goals in 45 appearances during his time at Old Trafford.

Despite the difficulties he faced on the pitch, the 30-year-old has insisted he has no regrets about leaving Arsenal, for whom he scored 80 goals in 166 matches. 

"I'm very happy I went to Manchester United," Sanchez told BBC Sport.

"I've always said that. It's the club that's won the most in England.

"When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic – I was happy there – but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something.

"I wanted to join them and win everything. I don't regret going there."

Sanchez's move to Inter provides him with the opportunity of a fresh start, but the former FC Barcelona star feels he could have accomplished more with United if he had been given the chance. 

"I was happy at Manchester United too, but I've always said to my friends: I want to play," he added

"If they would let me play, I'll do my best. Sometimes I'd play 60 minutes then I wouldn't play the next game – and I didn't know why."
