Alexis Sanchez is a Manchester United player.
You simply couldn’t have imagined that a few weeks ago but it’s actually happened.
Manchester City had been heavily linked with Sanchez in the summer with Sanchez seemingly keen on a reunion with his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Considering City’s riches and Sanchez’s expiring contract, it didn’t look as though anything would stop him from making the move.
That was until Manchester United declared their interest.
And the Red Devils blew City out of the water with their offer of a swap-deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the other way.
There has also been a lot made of the wages the Chilean will receive, with it being suggested he will pocket almost £500,000-per-week.
But those that called him a “mercenary” for making the move to Old Trafford might want to take a look at his first interview as a United player.
That’s because he spoke about how much he loved the club and how his “dream” had just come true - suggesting that it was far more than just money that convinced him to join.

SANCHEZ ADMITS HIS DREAM CAME TRUE
In the interview, Sanchez also revealed that he spoke about joining the club with legendary manger Sir Alex Ferguson but never gave up his desire to walk out at the Theatre of Dreams.
"Since I was a young lad I’ve always said that my dream was to play for Manchester United, and I’m not just saying that because I’m here now and today it’s come true," Sanchez said.
"I always said as a kid that I’d like to play for United and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it. We chatted for around 20 minutes. And I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United. It really is a massive club, very powerful, and so now, when I got the opportunity to come here, I looked at the badge and my hairs just stood up on end because it’s a powerful club and the biggest in England."
