Arsenal legend Ian Wright shared his opinion on social media straight after Manchester United announced the signing of Alexis Sanchez.

Used sparingly by Jose Mourinho this season, Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal in a straight swap-deal.

Sanchez is expected to make his debut for United when they visit Yeovil Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night.

“I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world," said the Chilean forward, as per the Manchester United website.

"I have spent three-and-a-half wonderful years at Arsenal and I bring with me very positive memories of that great club and its fans.

"The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose 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.”

What Ian Wright posted about Arsenal

Wright won a Premier League title, two FA Cups and a League Cup during his seven year spell in north London.

Sanchez is not the first Arsenal player to force his way out the club and it's clear that the BBC pundit is fed up of it.

Wright, 54, pointed the finger of blame at the Arsenal board - and plenty of Arsenal fans in the comments section were in agreement.

"Gutted to see this but, he did say on many occasions he wants to win things! Another one of our potential legends has left us for Manchester United! Gotta blame the board. Good luck @alexis_officia1 you gave everything for us."

Well said, Wrighty.

Famously, Robin van Persie joined the Red Devils after eight years at Arsenal and won the Premier League title in his first season in Manchester.

Sanchez is highly unlikely to win the Premier League this season, with Mourinho's side trailing Manchester City by 12 points.

However, he'll be desperate to help United win their first league title since 2013 next season.
