Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has insisted he has no regrets about his move to Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old, who has joined Inter Milan on loan for the rest of the season, scored just five goals in 45 appearances for United after arriving as their highest-paid player from Arsenal in January 2018.
The Chilean, earning a reported £400,000 a week, came in for heavy criticism, but told BBC Sport he remains glad he made the move.

“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United,” Sanchez said. “I’ve always said that. It’s the club that has 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 scored 80 goals in 166 games for Arsenal after signing for £30million from Barcelona in July 2014, but suffered a major slump in form after joining United.
He scored two Premier League goals in 27 appearances and made only 31 starts out of a possible 77 for the club.
“I’ve always said to my friends I want to play. If they (United) would let me play I’ll do my best,” Sanchez added.
“Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game and I didn’t know why.”
