Alexis Sanchez joins Manchester United as Henrikh Mkhitaryan makes Arsenal move

Alexis Sanchez joins Manchester United as Henrikh Mkhitaryan makes Arsenal move

Barcelona came calling three years later, where he won a La Liga title and a Spanish Cup.

Reports indicated that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was keen on replacing Sanchez with Mkhitaryan, but the Armenian international's representative Mino Raiola suggested that a move was far from guaranteed.

Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have sealed their respective moves to Manchester United and Arsenal, the two clubs confirmed on Monday.

Theo Walcott, another mainstay of the Wenger years, joined Everton last week, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is starring for Liverpool after threatening to run down his contract last year, while Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil can leave The Emirates for nothing at the end of the season. "I never had any doubts about that". The Armenia midfielder has struggled since joining United in July 2016, but proved at Borussia Dortmund that he is a technically gifted, creative talent.

"Since I was a young lad I've always said that my dream was to play for Manchester United, and I'm not just saying that because I'm here now and today it's come true", Sanchez told MUTV.

With injuries affecting Mkhitaryan in his early months at United, Mourinho said the player needed time to adjust to the physicality and intensity of the Premier League.

He finished last season by scoring an acrobatic goal in United's 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm and began this season well, too, setting up five goals in his first three games.

Sanchez was tipped for a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but the runaway Premier League leaders dropped out of the race for his signature amid rumours of concerns regarding the financial package. He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

Sanchez said: "I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world".

"There are people (former club players) who have spoken with no knowledge of what happens inside the club and cause damage".

Mkhitaryan is cup-tied in that competition, so could make his debut against Swansea next week.
