Official! United unveil Sanchez in monster $287m deal

Sanchez completed a medical at United's Carrington training ground on Sunday afternoon before travelling to Old Trafford to film promotional footage for his unveiling.

Sanchez said: "I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world".

In an Instagram post, he took a parting shot at ex-Arsenal players who have criticised his attitude. He appears to have been reluctant to bring in a new player on huge wages.

He would have been available on a free transfer when his contract expired in four months' time but once City baulked at the amount of money involved in a mid-season deal, United manager Mourinho urged his club to step in.

Perhaps there is an element of reverse psychology in Mourinho's thinking and he does it to provoke a positive reaction from his players.

"Attack, attack, attack" is a chant that often swirls around the home of United and it was a philosophy that came naturally to Ferguson's trophy-winning teams.

United will be hoping their substantial investment helps close the gap on their Emirati-backed cross-city rivals Manchester City, who are streaking away with the Premier League title this season.

It's believed no fee has been exchanged between the clubs, with Mkhitaryan's value enough to satisfy the Gunners.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table but won both the Europa League and League Cup under Mourinho in his first campaign in charge last term.

"It's a dream come true", Mkhitaryan said, "because I've always dreamed of playing for Arsenal".

"It is vital as well to have players who have experience, because we have a very good bunch of young players but we know that it's not sufficient in the Premier League today to put them all in together". He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

"If I was to say which one is more likely to happen in January and one he's still working on is the central midfielder".

Mkhitaryan said it was a "dream" to move to Arsenal.

Despite not longer being part of Jose Mourinho's plans at Old Trafford, and quickly falling out of favour with the Portuguese manager, former Dortmund player Mkhitaryan actually started the season pretty well.
