Alexis Sanchez has completed his move to Manchester United from Arsenal. In return Arsenal get the services of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, considering Mkhitaryan has had more downs than ups since coming to the Premier League it looks like an excellent piece of business from the red side of Manchester. It’s estimated that Sanchez’s wages are in the £350,000/week range making him the highest paid premier league football.
We’ll see how both singings pan out for their respective sides in the coming weeks. Will Sanchez high wages affect the dressing room in Manchester? And just how will Mkhitaryan link up with Ozil?
At least for everyone the transfer ordeal is now over, with Sanchez transfer not going through to Manchester City at the tail end of the previous transfer window with Arsenal’s bid for Lemar of Monaco being rejected and not willing to sell without a replacement proving to be a costly choice by Arsenal with them previously rejecting Manchester City’s £60 million bid. With no fees being involved in the transfer to Manchester United with just a straight swap deal taking place. There’s a strong chance Mkhitaryan could have been purchased for no more than 20 million, which you could look at as a 40million loss for Arsenal. Though as Sanchez would have been able to leave on a free in the summer. They’ve got a decent player in return albeit one who has struggled for form.
