'Alexis snubbed City because United are miles bigger!'

Alexis Sanchez is expected to be announced as a Manchester United player today

Manchester United and Arsenal agreed a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, ending one of the longest-running transfer sagas in recent Premier League memory.

"I'm convinced that the way the football is going, it's maybe not only to buy players with huge amounts of money, but have players in your team who care about your club, have a sense of belonging and a pride of belonging to the club".

Klopp, according to the Liverpool Echo, said: "No Liverpool player of this squad would leave to any other Premier League club during the season". "The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with José 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".

Manchester United are now trailing 12 points behind table-toppers Manchester City and if Sanchez comes to Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho's side may get the inspiration to close the gap between the two teams.

The Gunners' boss did not criticize Sanchez commitments saying that he is a great guy and was committed until the last minute.

"City seem very blase about it", he said in his column in Britain's Sun newspaper.

He scored 80 goals in 166 appearances after the London club paid 35 million pounds ($48.83 million) for him in July 2014, and won the FA Cup in 2015 and 2017, scoring in both finals.

Liverpool face Swansea in Wales on Monday night, as they look to build on their decisive 4-3 victory against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City last weekend.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is delighted to have captured Mkhitaryan and hailed the player's range of qualities.

Yet his current opposite number at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho, may find himself facing even more pressure now that he has secured Sanchez's signature.

Klopp meanwhile believes his players have the "commitment" to not be swayed by lucrative contracts and greater prospects on offer with the other members of the Premier League's "big six". I think it's so close, so close - so close that if it doesn't happen (soon) it's not going to happen. "All we achieved and the good moments that I gave to the club, I want to dedicate it to the fans, they are the most important".

"I always said as a kid that I'd like to play for United and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it".

A tireless and direct runner with a natural inclination to attack, Sanchez would likely have been a good fit for United under Ferguson, who quit in 2013 after almost 27 trophy-filled years.
