Ole Gunnar Solskjaer let Alexis Sanchez join Inter Milan on loan this summer (Picture: Getty)

Alexis Sanchez has insisted he has no regrets about joining Manchester United, but admits he was left confused by a lack of playing time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 30-year-old forward completed a season-long loan move to Inter Milan this summer following a miserable 19-month spell at Old Trafford, where he managed just five goals in all competitions.

Romelu Lukaku sealed a permanent switch to the San Siro at the start of the month and Sanchez was desperate to follow in the Belgians footsteps in order to improve his first-team prospects and revive his stuttering career.

The Chile international was Uniteds top earner on around £400,000-a-week and Inter have reportedly agreed to pay the majority of these wages until the end of 2019/20 campaign.

Sanchez claims he was never given enough game-time to succeed at United after making only nine starts in the Premier League last term.

I think that Im happy when I play for my national team, he said.

I was happy at Manchester United too, but Ive always said to my friends: I want to play.

If they would let me play Ill do my best. Sometimes Id play 60 minutes then I wouldnt play the next game – and I didnt know why.
