Watch as Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sign for Manchester United and Arsenal in a swap deal!
Alexis Sanchez and Mkhitaryan have finally made their moves.
It looked as though it will never finish, but after weeks of speculation, both have officially swapped the clubs.
Obviously Sanchez got a bigger attention, given that Arsenal was desperate to take hold of him. Sanchez was the key Arsenal player for the last 3.5 years, so it was kind of a shock for him to swap with one of Arsenal’s main rivals.
Sanchez didn’t want Arsenal “pocket” money and choose United, to became the best paid player in England. Wenger didn’t want to part with Sanchez without a player in return, and managed to get Mkhitaryan.

Mkhitaryan’s form hasn’t been that great and was mainly sitting at United’s bench in recent months.
On paper, it looks as though United got a fantastic player, while Arsenal got a lot worse player. Still, this is on paper, while reality will be something else.
Now, United did go the distance with their video of Sanchez’s “intro video”, while Arsenal just made one simple gif.
Given the introduction, its 1-0 for United!
