Alexis Sanchez is getting used to life at Carrington as he trains with his Manchester United team-mates
Alexis Sanchez has been getting to grips with his new Manchester United team-mates in training – just a week on from his Arsenal switch.
The 29-year-old made a terrific start to life in a United shirt, playing a key role in their 4-0 win over League Two club Yeovil in the fourth round of the FA Cup – assisting Ander Herrera and helping tee up Marcus Rashford.
Sanchez has certainly made an impression on his team-mates in training, with Luke Shaw saying he was taken aback by the Chilean’s “unbelievable” ability and Michael Carrick describing him as a “proper” United signing.
United boss Jose Mourinho has hailed his newest recruit, labelling him an “amazing signing” following his man-of-the-match performance against Yeovil.
Manchester United signed Sanchez in a straight swap with Arsenal which saw attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading to the Emirates.
Sanchez could make his United debut against Tottenham on Wednesday as Mourinho’s side look to catch leaders Manchester City, who sit 12 points clear at the top of the table.
