If Sanchez says yes to this offer that's a fantastic piece of business financially for United.  

 

 

 

yup he could have got way more as a free agent going to city

I thought Arsenal only let Sanchez go if Man Utd agreed the swap offer with Mkhitaryan with no additional fee

I've seen so many Arsenal fans say Sanchez left for the money. Go offer him the same wages as us and we'll see who he chooses.

If he's leaving for the purpose of being successful why go to United over City then? Hell, Arsenal have won more than United have since Ferguson left the latter and neither have won the title since then while City look to be one of the best sides in Europe.

City are obviously the best in country right now but I think things can change quickly. Chelsea won the league then finished mid table, Leicester fought relegation then won, Real Madrid conquered Europe and are now battling for top 4.

 

Maybe he just wants to work with the manager with the most accolades currently in world football. After all he already worked with Guardiola once and didn't get the best out of him.

 

This is Manchester United after all it's not easy to turn the club down.

I mean that's fine from a Utd fan

 

Please take this as a genuine and honest opinion (because I couldn't give a fuck which manchester club he went to)- Sanchez is doing it entirely for the money.

 

He had the choice between:

 

a) A shit ton of money and a huge contract, in a disjointed team full of "form players" rather than "star players" - with a manager who is known for making attacking players worse

b) Less money (but still a shit ton), but guaranteed premier league trophy and playing in a team full of world class players - with a manager who he was successful under who is known for making attacking players better

 

Sanchez hasn't gone because he wants to play the best football, Sanchez has gone because he wants the biggest payout. He's a mercenary, and that's all there is to it.

 

There honestly isn't a single Utd player that would get into that City team (well actually, maybe De Gea and Jones - but that's only cos De Gea is amazing and Stones is weak) - but you get the point, City are a much much MUCH better prospect football-wise for a player like Sanchez, than utd is.

 

That being said it's great for Utd that you've got him - he's a player that will win you games on his own and is a real star.

Sadly very true and a really weird decision by Sanchez. 

 

A great deal for United. 

 

Not the worst piece of business to miss out on for City although if I was them, I'd buy him just to make sure United couldn't. Age isn't on Sanchez's sign, hes hardly been instrumental in Europe or has high class European knockout pedigree so he doesn't tick too many boxes for them in all honesty, and I'd rather play Aguero/Jesus.

You're wrong. Don't get me wrong - Jesus is quality and is the best young player in Europe right now (better than Mbappe imo) but Sanchez is current world class, Jesus is just potentially there.

 

As a first team player currently sanchez would help city win the CL in the next 3 years - something jesus will not be instrumental in for like 3/4 years

He's been plaing for Arsenal though who have been terrible in the last 16 for ages now.

 

Saw images of the double leg break of Everton's McCarthy. Rondon was in tears, I feel sorry for both because it was a freak accident.

Spurs lack creativity without Eriksen. Much like us, they sorely need another playmaker imo.

Congratulations to Alexis Sanchez for joining the biggest club in world football.
 

Best of luck to Henrikh Mkhitaryan on your future endeavors.

Virgil van Lovren has made literally no difference to Liverpool's defense. I think they might have gotten rinsed by Southampton...

 

6 years going on 7 without a trophy now, I think. Lol

Bournemouth 3-0 Chelsea, now Watford 4-1 Chelsea. They are in free-fall and at serious risk of losing their top 4 position.

Fantastic result against Chelsea at Old trafford. Chelsea are now in serious danger of dropping out of the top 4.

I think City, Spurs and Liverpool will surely get top 4. Idk who the the last team will be but I think we could do it.

Full time, Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool! Serves Lovren right for running his mouth yesterday and then putting in a shambolic performance.

Tactically outclassed.

Mourinho sat two in midfield which totally destroyed our usual trident.

Then he targetted TAA and Lovren, our weakest links in defence. 

And it worked. 

 

Really a bit annoying given we could have done the same with Ashley Young versus Salah.

 

I felt like we came into this game with the game plan to play as we have been. Against Mourinho, thats always a bad shout. 

 

 

 

Lovren really needs replacing but I've basically grown sick of even saying it.

McTominay looked passable which is weird and unusual.  It was still a fiesta just after half time, United lost their compose completely in the 2nd half.  

 

United might not look good or composed, but they have about 8 top of Premier League defenders and Jose is a smart, smart coach about how he uses them.

One of the greatest United comebacks of all time, and one of the greatest Manchester derbies of all time. Nobody gave us a chance, not even me, and especially so after the second goal.

 

I love United.

The end of an era. Farewell to the last of the old guard.
