Mkhitaryan wants to 'create history' after 'dream' Arsenal move

Sanchez has been a regular scorer for Arsenal and the Opta data shows why he outstrips Mkhitaryan in front of goal. Not to be outdone though, City had their own trick up their sleeve as they released a bombshell announcement of their own.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United is motivated by money and not silverware, according to a report on the Telegraph.

Naturally, the not so coincidental timing of their news was picked up across Twitter, with many fans and media outlets commenting on City's exceptional timing.

He is a match-winner, he's a leader, he's got guts, he won't be intimidated by Old Trafford which some players who go there are, he's captain of Chile. Any attempt to sign Malcom, the rated winger at Bordeaux was made harder yesterday when new manager Gus Poyet had only agreed to take the role if he had an assurance that he would not be sold. "It's a pleasure to be a part of and I'm really excited about what we can achieve in the coming years".

The former Barcelona man has been handed the iconic number seven shirt, and Sanchez is excited by the visions of United's past conjured by his new jersey.

Peter Odemwingie joined Francis on Premier League Daily and concurred that United were right to bring in a player with the maturity of Sanchez, who turned 29 last month.

Wenger also remarked: "I believe as well, despite all the financial superpowers that we have in the league and in Europe now, I believe it's very important that we keep the basis of our focus on getting people out [developing players] from inside the club".

The Armenia worldwide scored 23 goals and set up 32 more in his last season at Dortmund but failed to reproduce anything close to those numbers at United.

It is far from clear whether Mkhitaryan does indeed say that, but Arsenal have deleted their video from YouTube.

He finished last season by scoring an acrobatic goal in United's 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm and began this season well, too, setting up five goals in his first three games. He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

Mkhitaryan is not a like for like swap and there have been questions over whether Arsenal are actually in need of another playmaker, regardless of Wenger's penchant for recruiting them.

"I must say he's a player who has all the attributes".

Mkhitaryan is cup-tied in that competition, so could make his debut against Swansea next week.
