Ex-Arsenal star Mikael Silvestre celebrates Alexis Sanchez's transfer with vintage photograph

Sanchez spent three years at Barcelona, winning La Liga in 2013 before twice lifting the FA Cup with Arsenal but his relationship with the club soured after he tried to orchestrate a move to United's rivals Manchester City in the summer. A tireless and direct runner with a natural inclination to attack, Sanchez would likely have been a good fit for United under Ferguson, who quit in 2013 after almost 27 trophy-filled years. Alexis Sanchez's future has been clarified.

"Alexis is one of the best attacking players in the world and he will complete our very young and talented group of attacking players", United manager Jose Mourinho said. He has a good team attitude and can play in all kinds of positions. At this stage of my career, I simply have to enjoy myself on the pitch and play. That could easily be Sanchez's motto, too.

The Chilean will wear the number 7 shirt at United and will follow in the footsteps of Old Trafford greats such as George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, who also wore the famous jersey.

Sanchez can't wait to get down to work with United. He will immediately excite the fans with his hunger and warrior spirit.

"I remember today, a conversation I had with Henry, a historic Arsenal player, who changed club for the same reason and today is my turn".

Some called it petulance.

'If he (Sanchez) is on the wages that is being bandied about then other players will know that when their contracts come up or they are in demand from other clubs.

At Arsenal, Alexis averaged a goal or assist every 107.58 minutes (or 0.75 per 90), scoring 80 goals and creating 46 for his teammates across 166 appearances.

It should be worth that eight-year wait.

Having made his breakthrough with his hometown club as a 17-year-old, Mkitharyan quickly became a key first-team player and helped Pyunik win four successive top-flight titles before departing for Russian Premier League side Metalurh Donetsk for a small fee. When players have only a short contract [remaining], at some stage you have to make a decision. United, on the other hand, are adding another forward who could prove detrimental to the development of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial while also paying over the odds.

Italian club Udinese snapped up the 17-year-old after just one season.

"When a player of that ability comes along, I think you got to be in the market for him", Irwin, who played over 500 games for United during 12 trophy-laden seasons, told Reuters. He is the captain of the Armenian national team and is their all-time top scorer.
