Alexis Sanchez out for two months?

There are reports Alexis Sanchez may be out for over two months after the Inter striker suffered an ankle injury playing for Chile.

The 30-year-old is only on loan from Manchester United and made four appearances for the Nerazzurri this season, scoring one goal.

However, he was on the end of a heavy challenge from Juventus and Colombia wide man Juan Cuadrado during a 0-0 draw.

A statement from the Chile football federation confirmed the initial diagnosis was dislocated tendons and possible ligament damage.

Alexis Sanchez is flying back to Italy, where he will undergo further tests and decide on the next step in treatment, which could even be surgery.

According to Mundo Deportivo and TyC Sports, the former Barcelona and Arsenal player could be out of action for at least two months, effectively ending his 2019.
