Alexis Sánchez at last was recovering the smile after his abysmal stage in Manchester. The Chilean forward was having the confidence of Antonio Conte, already had marked this season and everything seemed to indicate that his performance went to go to more. By all this, his injury in the last party of Chile is a very hard news for the Inter and for him same.

The ex Barcelona has a luxation of sinews peroneos in his left ankle with commitment retináculo. This injury could leave him without playing until 2020, in the case that the Inter decide that it has to go through the operating theatre. The Italian group has to decide if begin a conservative treatment in which it would have to be some four weeks without training before beginning with the recovery, or operate immediately.

The forecasts are not good and everything seems to indicate that it will finish operating. The seleccionador of Chile explained the case of Alexis and gave the times of recovery in case that the forward finish going through the operating theatre. "If the Inter operates him could remain us without him two to three months. The decision is of his club", ensured.

The trainer of the combined suramericano also wanted to review the important that is for him Alexis, and stood out his performance in what it goes of season. "For us it is Alexis; for the Inter, is one more. It is a pity, came reappearing in his club, had done two goals, played Champions League... And now we have to expect these crucial hours to know the determination that will take the club", confirmed.

The Inter will play the Champions without Alexis

If all confirms and Alexis operates , the most likely is that it was not of return until January of 2020. This wants to say that it would lose the turn of Champions League against the FC Barcelona. In the gone, the Chilean was to title by the drop of Romelo Lukaku and did a quite complete party. It ran a lot, it looked for whenever it could the spaces and went a nuisance for the defence, especially in the first part.

The Inter-Barça of 10 December could be key for the interistas, since right now only add a point of six possible in Champions. The Barça has four, the same that the Borussia Dortmund. Precisely another meeting that will lose will be against the Germans, the 23 of ocutubre. A defeat then could leave to the ones of Conte almost out of the Champions, since it would force them to win it practically everything. The Italian technician will not be able to have Alexis in what it remains of 2020 with almost total security, and will have to them to him fix with Lukaku and Lautaro.
