Official: Man Utd Sign Sanchez

The Chilean was announced as a United player on Monday night, in a deal that saw Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan go to Arsenal.

The 29-year-old has now explained how he once chatted to Ferguson about playing for the 20-time Premier League champions.

"I always said, as a kid, that I'd like to play for United, and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it," he told United's official website.

"We chatted for around 20 minutes. And I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.

"It really is a massive club, very powerful, and so now, when I got the opportunity to come here, I looked at the badge and my hairs just stood up on end because it's a powerful club and the biggest in England.

"I believe that at this club it's possible to achieve anything. The badge says it all, it's a huge club on a worldwide scale, and I want to come here and win everything: the Premier League, the Champions League, and whatever comes the club's way in the future."
