Premier League: Reactions to Sanchez United signing

Chile international, Alexis Sanchez, is finally a Manchester United player, the club has confirmed. In a classic video posted on the club’s official social media account, United unveiled their latest star, who joins from rivals, Arsenal, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the other way.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal,” the club said in an official statement.

Sanchez, who had just six months left on his contract at the Emirates, has since put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Red Devils, which will see him at the club until the summer of 2022.

“Alexis is one of the best attacking players in the world and he will complete our very young and talented group of attacking players,” club manager, José Mourinho said.

For the 29-year-old former Barcelona star, the opportunity to play for the 20-times Premier League champions was too good to turn down

“I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world,” Sanchez said. “The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down.”

However, the ex-Arsenal forward wasn’t the only one thrilled by the transfer, as fans of the English giants took to their social media accounts to welcome the Chilean.
