Alexis Sanchez has officially joined Manchester United and announced by the club after a long wait from Manchester United fans who were so excited for the arrival of the Chilean star.
Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United in a swap deal with Arsenal where the Chilean international joined the club after the Armenian international, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, joined Arsenal in the swap deal between Manchester United and Arsenal.
Alexis Sanchez’s arrival to Manchester United will be a huge boost for Manchester United’s chances in winning trophies this season where the Red Devils will be fighting for the FA Cup, Champions League, and maybe even the Premier League even though it will be a hard task with Manchester City’s gap and performance.
However, one of the main things Manchester United fans are excited about Alexis Sanchez’s arrival is his new shirt number which is officially confirmed and revealed.
Alexis Sanchez will be wearing the iconic shirt for Manchester United which is the number 7 shirt. This iconic number was worn by several legends of Manchester United such as Cristiano Ronaldo who is currently a legend for Portugal and Real Madrid as well, David Beckham who retired from football, and Eric Cantona who is one of the greatest legends of Manchester United.
Moreover, several other players wore this shirt after Cristiano Ronaldo and the retirement of Sir Alex such as Depay and Angel Di Maria where both of them underperformed under Luis Van Gaal, and they were sold later on.
Alexis Sanchez brings a great hope for Manchester United fans who are dreaming of holding the Premier League title again after years of not winning it.
