Piers Morgan is among the latest favourites to replace Jeff Stelling on Soccer Saturday, Ajax are at the peak of their powers in Europe thanks to a former West Ham flop, and France drop a superb kit.
He has enjoyed an illustrious career spanning 16 years, beginning with his youth team of Cobreloa before moving to Udinese in Serie A.
During his career Sanchez has won La Liga, the FA Cup twice and the Copa America twice. His €25million transfer from Udinese to Barcelona made him the most expensive Chilean player of all time.
He was recalled to Italy and became an integral part of the Udinese team for the following three seasons. His performances prompted Pep Guardiola's Barcelona to sign him in the summer of 2011 for €25million, the first Chilean to play for the Spanish giants.
For his first two seasons at Barcelona, Sanchez was part of a front three alongside Lionel Messi and David Villa. During the 2012/13 season the trio scored 82 goals between them which played a vital role in Barcelona winning the league that season.
In his final season at Camp Nou, Sanchez scored 19 goals in La Liga, but was still sold to Arsenal for £32million to accommodate the arrival of Luis Suarez in the summer.
Switch to North London
Despite the heavy price tag, Sanchez provided value for money as he quickly became one of the best acquisitions Arsenal had made for many years.
In a controversial move, he joined Manchester United in January 2018 in a swap deal that saw Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan join the Gunners.
With his reputation high after a successful period at Arsenal, there were big expectations of Sanchez at Old Trafford. To demonstrate their confidence, United handed Sanchez the number seven shirt previously worn by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Eric Cantona.
In the summer at the start of the 2019/20 season, Sanchez joined Inter Milan on loan, where he scored just four goals. Despite this lowly return, Inter Milan decided to make his deal permanent, signing him on a free transfer on a three-year deal.
Success with Chile
Sanchez has also starred in a film called Mi Amigo Alexis in 2019. The plot revolves around a 12-year-old boy called Tito who idolises Sanchez.
Sanchez has an estimated net worth of £35million as of October 2019. Sanchez is now 69th on Forbes top earners list for athletes.
