Italian media published photos and videos of Sanchez from a car park at Malpensa airport and said he would undergo a medical check.
anchez, Chile’s all-time leading scorer with 43 goals, joined Manchester United in January 2018 and scored only five goals in 45 games, well short of the heights he reached at Arsenal where he netted 80 goals in 166 matches.
The 30-year-old led Chile to their first major titles, the Copa America in 2015 and the Copa Centenario in 2016, but suffered a major disappointment when they missed out on 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He previously spent three seasons in Serie A with Udinese before moving to Barcelona.
Sanchez will be reunited with his Manchester United team mate Romelu Lukaku who joined Inter this month.
Inter appointed former Italy, Chelsea and Juventus coach Antonio Conte during the close season in a bid to end an eight-year trophy drought. (Reuters/)

Spain’s Sanchez calls for shared EU debt, Merkel unmoved on bonds
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez made the case for ambitious EU fiscal intervention including shared debt on Sunday, however there was no indication of a change of heart in Germany on the question of “coronabonds.”
“It is time to act with solidarity: creating a new debt mutualisation mechanism,” Sanchez wrote in an op-ed for several newspapers, including Italy’s La Repubblica and Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
According to him, this is a time for breaking old national dogma.
Germany, along with Austria and the Netherlands, fears taking on liability for other countries’ debt.
According to Sanchez, measures already agreed to shore up the bloc’s economy are a good start, however, do not go far enough.
Report says a package of three shorter-term measures looks set to be signed off on Tuesday, however, the thornier question of a collective debt instrument, so-called coronabonds, is more divisive.
According to her chief of staff Helge Braun, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s position is unchanged.
“The government is sceptical towards anything that endangers the stability of the Eurozone economic and currency area,’’ the head of the Federal Chancellery told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
