French club side Olympique de Marseille have officially confirmed the signing of Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer.

The Chile's record goalscorer, had his contract terminated with Serie A side Inter Milan earlier this week by mutual agreement after manager Simone Inzaghi told him he was no longer part of his plans for the upcoming season.

He completed his move to Marseille following medical tests on Wednesday, signing a two-year deal which will keep him at the club until 2024.

It will be the first time the Chilean would play in Ligue 1 in his 17-years professional career.

The 33-year-old made 39 appearances last season as Inter were pipped to the Serie A title by AC Milan . 

He was greeted by hundreds of fans when he landed in Marseille on Tuesday night, with flares and fireworks upon his arrival. 

Marseille officially announced the signing depicting Sanchez as a superhero in an animation.

Sanchez has previously played for Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester United and has been Chile’s star player over the last decade.

But, he will not play at this year’s Qatar World Cup as Chile were knocked out in the qualifying stage..
