Manchester United announce Alexis Sanchez deal

Manchester United announce Alexis Sanchez deal

United will reportedly pay £35 million (39.6 million euros, $48.5 million) for Sanchez, a £20 million transfer fee to Arsenal and £15 million to the player's agent Fernando Felicevich.

"I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world", he said.

Alexis Sanchez is reportedly set to become a Manchester United player on Monday after a leaked image apparently showed the Chile global on the Old Trafford pitch in the club's famous red shirt.

United fans responded with some harsh comments Arsenal fans won't be happy with.

Sanchez, 29, is set to become United's best-paid player, with his salary set to be around £450,000 ($782,000) per week.

Sanchez nearly teamed up at City with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola in a £60m move last summer, but his deadline-day transfer collapsed when Arsenal failed to sign Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar.

Jose Mourinho is confident his protracted pursuit of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is nearing a conclusion at long last. That wasn't necessarily the case for United.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should all be wary about Alexis Sanchez's imminent arrival, according to Paul Ince. Mourinho tried unsuccessfully to sign a winger in the last off-season.

It's not completely clear what Mkhitaryan says due to the music, but Arsenal fans have heard enough and are convinced that Aubameyang is heading to the Emirates Stadium.

Mourinho full of praise as United see off 'brave' Burnley
Burnley manager Sean Dyche has now seen his side fail to win for eight games but remains confident about their current form.

Wenger rejected the theory that Sanchez was disrupting the harmony in the Arsenal team in his final months there.

Wenger said: "Henrikh is a very complete player".

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Citizens midfielder Barton said: "I think Man United had to buy him. I never had any doubts about that". We're still the biggest club in the league and we can get who we want'. He made 22 appearances for United this season.

United signed Sanchez for a four-and-a-half year deal from Arsenal while Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal.

He added that Sanchez will do better in a team like Liverpool, Manchester City or Tottenham Hotspur.

McClaren, who was Alex Ferguson's assistant when Manchester United won the treble in 1999, said the Sanchez signing would be a major coup for the club but warned his earnings could unsettle other players. "He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well", Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said in the the team's official press release.

The Gunners' display was a well-timed rebuttal to the critics who claimed the sale of Sanchez would be the nadir of a rocky season.

Sanchez is in line to train with his new teammates tomorrow before a debut against Yeovil in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night.
