Mourinho hails Sanchez as one of the world’s best

Jose Mourinho has claimed Manchester United have signed one of the best players in the world when they landed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this week.

The Chilean has been the talk of the January transfer window, finally making the move to Manchester United on Monday despite long standing beliefs he would actually be moving to the blue side of Manchester.

He has been given the coveted number 7 at United, and speaking in his pre match press conference, Jose Mourinho claimed that Sanchez is one of the best attacking players in the world, and has joined a ‘giant’ club:

“I think everybody knows the player he is, I think everybody knows what he did at Arsenal, I try not to speak what he did before in Spain and Italy but in the Premier League he has shown the quality he has.

“We got one of the best attacking players in the world and he’s very important for us because we want the best possible players.

“Alexis changed from a fantastic club to a giant club and Mkhitaryan changed for a fantastic club.”

Mourinho also revealed that the former Arsenal man could make his Red Devil’s debut on Friday night during United’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Yeovil.
