Cape Town - Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes that Alexis Sanchez’s move to Old Trafford is a match made in heaven.
Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have sealed their respective moves to United and Arsenal, the two clubs confirmed on Monday.
The swap deal was finalised after both players secured their work permits, having already undergone medicals at the weekend. Sanchez had entered the final six months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium and had also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea.
However, United's financial clout saw them win the race for the Chile international, who put pen to paper on four-and-a-half-year deal at Old Trafford.
"I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world," Sanchez told his new club's official website.
"I have spent three-and-a-half wonderful years at Arsenal and I bring with me very positive memories of that great club and its fans.
"The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down.
"I am very proud to be the first Chilean player ever to play for United's first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here."
