Manchester United fans are refreshing social media every minute as they await updates on Alexis Sanchez’s transfer.
The Chilean forward has agreed a four-and-a-half year contract at Old Trafford that will seen him earn a stunning £450,000-per-week.
The deal, which will see Henrikh Mkhitaryan sign for Arsenal, is expected to be announced on Monday and there’s every chance we will see Sanchez make his debut in the FA Cup clash against Yeovil on Friday.
The 29-year-old attacker has updated football fans on the progress of his move to Man United on social media.
He posted a video on Instagram of himself boarding a private jet, clearly headed for Manchester.
And it wasn’t just the video that excited Man United fans, but the music that can be heard in the background.
Sanchez's choice of music was interesting
Sanchez is listening to Robert Tepper’s ‘No Easy Way Out’, which is from the Rocky IV soundtrack.
The title of the song, and indeed, the exact lyrics that can be heard in Sanchez’s video, are both extremely fitting.
“I don't want to pacify you / I don't want to drag you down / But I'm feelin’ like a prisoner / Like a stranger in a no named town.”
Is Sanchez suggesting that he felt like a prisoner at Arsenal?
Here’s the full Rocky clip playing No Easy Way Out.
Man United fans thoroughly enjoyed Sanchez’s choice of song.
Sanchez retweeted Daily Mail article
The Chile international later retweeted an article from journalist Oliver Holt, who believes Sanchez’s critics are wrong to label him a “mercenary”.
“Martin Keown said he was the biggest mercenary in football. Well, maybe, but he’s got an awful lot of competition for that accolade,” Holt wrote.
“It’s not as if he’s signed for Wycombe Wanderers. It’s not as if he moved to China and turned his back on a top-level career.”
Sanchez has since arrived at United’s Carrington training base and will undergo a medical.
