The transfer saga of Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are finally completed after both Arsenal and Manchester United agreed for a swap deal with no transfer fees involved.
Sanchez was looking to leave last summer to City but the deal fall through last minute as the Gunners cancel the deal.
Reported by all online sports betting, he is thought to run down his contract until the end of the summer and leave for nothing and Arsenal will not get a single penny out of a quality player like him.
When the winter transfer window re-open last January, Pep Guardiola and City are on Sanchez again.
This time, Arsenal looks to have given up on the Chilean wanting to leave and would rather sell him for a price.
Then comes Jose Mourinho out of nowhere by convincing United to bid for the forward.
The payout to the player wages are too much for City to afford and even the richness of City pull out and let United have a free run.
From then on, it’s only one way it’s gonna go. That United is gonna get their man for a bargain price.
It’s over you think? Not just yet.
Arsenal counter the offer by wanting a player swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going to London.
The deal was on hold even though Sanchez and United have agreed personal terms with the player earning around £350,000 a week, a Premier League record.
It was reported the wage would be a problem for City to cover as they have many senior players will be dissatisfied by Sanchez earnings if he were to sign.
Once Mkhitaryan accepted the swap deal and willing to move to Arsenal, the move have escalates so quickly with both players heading to medical with their new team almost immediately.
Sanchez said he feels loved and is very happy to be playing for the best club in the world.
He also mentioned he was close to signing for United during Alex Ferguson era and has dream of playing in the Theater Of Dreams, Old Trafford.
He added that Mourinho was huge influence in his decision moving to United as he praised Mourinho’s winning ability in every club he managed just like himself, a winner at heart.
On the other side, Mkhitaryan has also reported to have said he would love to play for Arsenal back in 2009. So a win-win situation for both clubs?
The Armenian playmaker has mixed fortune while playing under Mourinho have not been playing as frequent as he wants.
His playing style is a bit more flare and control which suits the style of Arsenal. He describes his move to Arsenal is a dream come true and is ready to make history.
Our verdict is both players have tremendous quality and the clubs they signed for could really suits their style of play.
Can Arsenal play Mkhitaryan to his best and survive without Alexis Sanchez now that he is gone and can United start scoring and winning convincingly more often with the hot Chilean?
