Alexis Sanchez future

Alexis Sanchez celebrates during the Premier League game between Arsenal and Huddersfield Town on November 29, 2017

Alexis Sanchez completed his much-publicised move to Manchester United on January 22 following a long-running saga which stretched back to the summer.

The Chilean was on the verge of joining Manchester City in August only for the move to break down at the 11th hour when Arsenal were unable to source a replacement.

However, United emerged as frontrunners for the 29-year-old's signature in January having weighed in with a more lucrative offer and finally landed their man after months of speculation.

The deal also saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction in a straight swap between the two Premier League rivals.
