Man United Finally Gets Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United is serious in its hope of catching up on the City in the race for Premier League domination. This is after it has been confirmed that the Red Devils has finally signed to the club. Reports have it that the transfer amounted to a whopping £105 million, which is one of the biggest deals made in the history of football.

In fact, the 29-year-old has already been handed his no. 7 jersey by his new club. Now, he’ll be serving as one of Jose Mourinho’s attackers. For sure, this will send its rival Man City spiraling for new countermeasures to stop Sanchez’ offensive prowess somehow.

Sanchez will be earning £450,000 weekly now that he’s playing for Man United. This contract is good for four years and six months and will be worth a total of £105.3 million.

In addition to the gargantuan amount of money, reports also have it that Sanchez’s arrival to the team also features a sign-on fee worth £10 million. There’s also a £15 million fee for the agent that made the transfer possible, and another £35 million transfer fee.

With this, the total value of him transferring to the Red Devils will then be worth £165.3 million. But this wasn’t literally an addition to the team as it functioned more of a replacement. This is because Henrikh Mkhitaryan was part of the deal, which then sent him to Arsenal. It was a humble £35 million deal.

In a recent statement, Sanchez says that he’s thrilled to be playing for one of the biggest football clubs in the world.

The Chilean continues by saying that this was a as he’ll be playing in the historic Old Trafford stadium. He then adds that it’s a great honor to play for Jose Mourinho. Because of this, he feels very thankful for the recent happening.

Meanwhile, manager Jose Mourinho says that he wholeheartedly welcomes the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, calling him as one of the best attacking players globally. Mourinho adds that the midfielder forward will be the one to complete their offensive lineup.

The Portuguese manager continues that Sanchez will be the one to bring ambition and a bigger fiery passion to the team.

However, Mourinho’s speech wasn’t all about Sanchez, as he also acknowledged Mkhitaryan to have contributed greatly to the team’s efforts for years. Mkhitaryan also thinks that what happened was the best thing for him and the two teams.

As of now, Manchester City is still dominating in the Premier League, comfortably seated at the top spot. The City has strong 1/50 odds. However, Manchester United is also doing its best to overtake the City sooner or later with their 40/1 odds.

Though the gap might still sound far-fetched, it’s expected that this will increase the Red Devils’ favor now that Alexis Sanchez is playing for them. Chelsea’s at the third spot of the rankings with 80/1 odds, while Liverpool is at fourth spot with 66/1.

Also, it’s worth noting that Alexis Sanchez can rejoice in knowing that he doesn’t anymore need to deal with Arsenal’s lack of composure. The Gunners have been struggling to make a comeback in each of their games.

Because of this, they’re now at the sixth spot with 250/1 odds. For sure, Mkhitaryan needs to deal with this and adapt at the soonest time possible. So what does this mean for fans and bettors? Well, the answer to that is simple. And that now is the best time to .

Not only is it because they’ve got a new top gun in the club, but because their games are improving as the days go by. With these being said, let’s just hope that Alexis Sanchez will find himself comfortable with his new teammates.

Let’s also wish Henrikh Mkhitaryan the best of luck with the Arsenal. Hopefully, the Gunners won’t plummet even further down the list to the point of getting 2500/1 odds, just like Leicester, Burnley, and Everton.
