Arsenal and Manchester United have both confirmed the arrivals of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexis Sanchez as part of a swap deal.
Any fees involved are unknown at present, with the deal seemingly have been a straight swap not including any money exchanging hands, and that seems a fair deal for all the parties involved.
The Chilean has had one eye on a move for the entire campaign thus far, and had been believed to have his heart set on joining up with Pep Guardiola at Man City, but Manchester United have seemingly made him an offer more appealing to their city rivals, and have now landed him on a huge contract according to reports.
I can’t help but be happy with our end of the deal however, landing the Armenian all-time top goalscorer in his prime, and with the possibility of teaming him up with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is an exciting prospect.
Arsenal’s Twitter account announced his arrival with a simple Gif, but you can see below that the Red Devils announced their capture with a video.

Alexis has been a nuisance in the dressing room for our side through-out the term, and the team will likely be pleased to have ambience return to proceedings, and the unity of a team should return, with some players having refused to celebrate with Alexis at times of him scoring this season.
Could we have gotten the better deal with all things considered?
