Inter Milan forward Alexis Sanchez has said he hopes to play in the United States once his time in Europe is over.

The Chile international left Manchester United to join the Nerazzurri on loan this summer after scoring just five goals in 45 appearances for the Old Trafford.

However, he said he still believes he has a lot to offer in Europe and would be keen to play in Major League Soccer at a later date.

"I always have offers," Sanchez replied during a news conference before Chile's clash with Argentina in Los Angeles when asked about a potential move to MLS.

"They had told me about Miami, but I have got six or five years left at a good level in Europe. Although one day I could play in the United States.

"I'd like it a lot to play in [MLS], it is a league that is growing and is very good."

Sanchez also reiterated his time at United was a success despite his low scoring rate.

Having said he has no regrets about the move from Arsenal in January 2018, the 30-year-old further defended his time at Old Trafford.

At Inter, Sanchez will be joined by former United teammate Romelu Lukaku, who moved to San Siro for €80 million this summer, and the ex-Barcelona forward said the two formed a good understanding when they played together.

"I would have liked to play more with Lukaku," Sanchez said. "I think in the little we played together we did well.

"And when I became a starter under [Jose] Mourinho in the second season -- because I was always playing 60 minutes, did well and then the next game I didn't play -- if you look at the statistics, I didn't lose a game as a starter.

"Even against Juventus I was a starter, what did we do? We beat Juve 2-1. I didn't lose a game and I left unbeaten, even if it was sometimes 60 or 70 minutes, I didn't lose a game [as a starter] if you look at the stats."

Sanchez was unbeaten as a starter during the 2018-19 campaign, but lost five times in all competitions during the second half of his first season -- including in his Premier League debut away to Tottenham.
