Within the past hour Manchester United have announced Alexis Sanchez as our latest signing.
The Chilean superstar joins from Premier League rivals Arsenal in an exchange deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Sanchez could make his debut for us as early as this Friday’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Huish Park when we take on League Town strugglers Yeovil Town.
The 29-year-old had been in the final six months of his contract at Arsenal with no intention of signing a new deal. Instead of allowing him to leave on a free transfer over the summer, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger decided to exchange the player for United flop Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Sanchez has been one of the best players in the world for nearly a decade. He has spent the past three-and-a-half-years at the Emirates, scoring 60 goals in 122 Premier League appearances, predominately out wide, and for a team that hasn’t come close to challenging for the title.
