Here’s proof that Alexis Sanchez has always been a Manchester United fan
Alexis Sanchez is the latest addition to the Manchester United squad after he completed his switch from the Emirates to Old Trafford.
Speaking at his unveiling, the Chilean revealed it was a dream come true for him to join Manchester United.
He said: “Since I was a young lad I’ve always said that my dream was to play for Manchester United, and I’m not just saying that because I’m here now and today it’s come true.”
“I always said as a kid that I’d like to play for United and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it.”
“We chatted for around 20 minutes. And I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.”
“It really is a massive club, very powerful, and so now, when I got the opportunity to come here, I looked at the badge and my hairs just stood up on end because it’s a powerful club and the biggest in England.”
But many called his talk about a ‘dream come true’ as a cliche seeing every player tends so say the same when they join any big club.

On Mourinho’s role in making him join United, he added: “He(Mourinho) indicated it is important for the club for me to be here.”
“I also believe that the club itself cared about me joining, and I got the impression that they were keen for me to come here and wear the number seven shirt.”
“I think that also gets through to the player. Players sometimes need to feel important and loved by the club. That was one of the things that attracted me to come here, along with the manager, who is a person who won everything in Italy, the same as he did in Spain, and he’s a manager who likes to win.”
