Manchester United star Jesse Lingard sends welcome tweet to Alexis Sanchez

Jesse Lingard welcomes Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United with a unique message on Twitter.

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has welcomed new signing Alexis Sanchez to the club via Twitter.

The Chile international secured a switch to Old Trafford from Arsenal on Monday evening as part of a swap deal that resulted in Henrikh Mkhitaryan signing for the Gunners.

United stars have been sending warm welcomes to the 29-year-old on social media, and one of those came from Lingard, who posted a photo of himself appearing to call his new teammate, and added the caption: "Hello, Is That @Alexis_Sanchez ? Welcome To @ManUtd. I Knew You Wanted To Come Milly Rock With The Mandem #manchesterunited #JLingz."

The 25-year-old's message was in reference to his goal celebration, which is a dance from the song 'Milly Rock' by rapper 2 Milly.
