Smiling Mkhitaryan and Raiola in London to close Arsenal move

Sir Alex Ferguson

GETTYSir Alex Ferguson admits he looked at signing Alexis Sanchez when he was in charge of Man United

Despite Mkhitaryan's arrival at Arsenal, the departure of two-time Copa America victor Sanchez is likely to increase scrutiny on the contract situation of Mesut Ozil, whose deal will expire in June.

Speaking to journalists after being unveiled, Sanchez said that he always dreamt of playing for Man United since he was a boy and could not turn down the offer immediately it came through to him.

Okay, so they are paying ridiculous amounts of money to agents and to secure the signature of their new No.7, but the spin offs from a sporting and commercial perspective outweigh any negatives.

Did Adebayor go on to have an incredibly successful career after his spell at Arsenal?

"There have been a lot of young players, he's managed them and they've done very well". However, numbers never lie.

At the ripe old age of 29, Henry was transferred to Barcelona for €24 million. In just three short seasons, Henry won more trophies than he did in England, with six coming in the 2009 calendar year. "And given the 12-point cushion they have at the top of the Premier League why shouldn't they be?"

Being an Arsenal fan must be tough.

Can he help Arsenal return to the Champions League? He also wished Mkhitaryan the best of luck while at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger, also speaking to the club's site, had words of praise for his new signing; "Henrikh is a very complete player". The French winger had been noticed by Wenger as early as 2004.

Mkhitaryan is a slightly lightweight creative midfielder who is yet to really assert himself in the Premier League - so exactly the kind of player that Wenger likes to go in for. Talk about immediate impact. He became the first Armenian to ever join the club and later the first to win a major European trophy.

Manchester United have just announced Alexis Sanchez with the most dramatic video
Sanchez had been working with Arsenal's development squad this week, but returned to senior training on Friday. Arsene Wenger suggested that Sanchez's decision to swap Arsenal for United was influenced by money.

It turned out to be Fergie's last big coup as United boss before he retired at the end of the season.

Sanchez and Mkhitaryan are not exactly the same sort of player, so perhaps it is unfair to compare their goal returns. He would repeat his trophy-winning tendencies at Chelsea, helping the club win the league in his first season.

Arsenal allowed Sanchez to join Manchester United on Monday to avoid losing the Chile global on a free transfer when his contract expired at the end of the season. After some soul-searching, he realized that change had to be Arsenal.

Asked if he believes whether his time at Manchester United has affected Mkhitaryan's confidence, Wenger said: "I will know how much over the next few weeks". He made 22 appearances for United this season.

He spent two lengthy periods out of favour under Mourinho but did play a huge part in United's Europa League triumph in 2016-17, scoring the second goal in the 2-0 victory over Ajax in last May's final.
