It’s a dream come true because I’ve always dreamed of playing for Arsenal. Now that I’m here, I’ll do my best for this club to create history.’ Alexis Sanchez has completed his move to Old Trafford  Mkhitaryan joined United in 2016 from Dortmund for a fee of around £26million but the playmaker struggled for form and consistency in the north-west. After a tough debut campaign at Old Trafford, Mkhitaryan started this season as a first-team regular but he fell out with Mourinho after a drop in form and was included in just one squad over nine matches during November and December.

He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he’s very committed as well. I must say he’s a player who has all the attributes.’ Arsenal are yet to assign Mkhitaryan a number.
