Sanchez reveals why he joined Man Utd

Alexis Sanchez has said he joined Manchester United because they are the biggest clubs in the England, if not the world.

The Chilean made the very well publicised move from Arsenal to Manchester United in the January transfer window, and despite having already done well in the Premier League with the Gunners, has struggled to make an impact for the Red Devils.

While he has shown glimpses of brilliance in the famous red shirt, the majority of his performances for United have been vastly underwhelming, with the weekends FA Cup final against Chelsea being a particular disappointment.

Despite his struggles though, the 29-year-old has revealed that he moved to Old Trafford in order to win trophies, comparing the stature of the club to that of his former employers, Barcelona:

“I believe that United really is a very big club on a worldwide scale and even more so in England where it’s the biggest.

“They always want to win and to be fighting on all fronts and that’s the reason I wanted to come here.

“I also had some great players alongside me at Barcelona, some highly experienced guys who had great quality.

“I think that United are not too dissimilar as a club to them in their size and stature.

“However, we still have areas where we can improve.”
