Most transfers make sense at the time – even those which turn out to be an expensive disaster.

Fernando Torres was a goal machine – before he joined Chelsea from Liverpool. And more recently there's been the case of Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean is reportedly on the cusp of joining Inter Milan on loan after a desperately disappointing spell at Manchester United.

He joined United from Arsenal in January 2018 as part of a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and is understood to be the top earner at the club, but little has gone right for him since, as he's scored just five goals in 45 appearances.

He has yet to feature for United this season having suffered a hamstring injury while playing for Chile in the Copa America, but appears set to join up with former teammate Romelu Lukaku in Italy.
