Marseille have signed former Arsenal and Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer following his departure from Inter Milan, the French club announced on Wednesday.
Marseille said the forward, with 143 caps for Chile, had signed a deal at the Velodrome after passing a medical. A club official told AFP he had agreed a one-year contract.
Sanchez, 33, recently terminated his contract with Inter and arrived at Marseille airport late on Tuesday to be met by several hundred adoring supporters.
His arrival is a major boost for Marseille ahead of their return to the Champions League.
They qualified for this season's group stage after finishing as runners-up in Ligue 1 but then saw coach Jorge Sampaoli -- who used to coach Chile -- depart with ex-Croatia defender Igor Tudor replacing him.
Marseille will be Sanchez's sixth club in Europe after Udinese, Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Inter.
