Red Devils Legend: Why Sanchez Snubbed Pep's City For Man Utd

Red Devils Legend: Why Alexis Sanchez Snubbed Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City For Manchester United

By Keegan Kruger - Jan 22, 2018 05:00 PM @KeeganKruger

A Manchester United legend has revealed why he thinks Alexis Sanchez has seemingly decided to snub Pep Guardiola's Manchester City for the Red Devils.

Wenger Has Dig At Sanchez Amid Man Utd Move?

Former England international Paul Ince has insisted players pick Old Trafford over the Etihad because United are "serial winners", despite looking like they are not going to win the Premier League this season.

"Everyone is raving about City. But when it comes to the two clubs, Man United are miles bigger than City," Ince said, according to the Daily Mirror.

"Players would still prefer to go to them over Pep's side – that's a fact. Players won't go to City because they think they're a bigger, more historic club than United. Because they're simply not.

"Some might get the quick satisfaction of winning the league this year, but those years of history, and the side that Mourinho is building – players want to be a part of that.

"This signing only confirms that. Sanchez had the opportunity to go into a team where he could have won a trophy. But he didn't, he chose to go to United because of everything they stand for and that says a lot about the size of the club.

"City have some unbelievable players, but winning the league this year doesn't mean anything. They need to do that year upon year and collect trophies to compete with United. That's the true test. They're not serial winners. United are and that's why players want to be there.

"With the Champions League around the corner, this is a huge boost. Sanchez hasn't come to Old Trafford not to play. He's come to show how good he is, on the top stage, which is Europe. He's a special player and the sort that doesn't come around that often, and I'd say United's hopes of winning their fourth European trophy have just got a lot more likely."

Is This How Man Utd Could Line Up With Sanchez?

Sanchez has made 22 appearances for Arsenal so far this season, scoring eight goals and assisting four further strikes.

By the way, morinho is building nothing, that team can't play football with all the players they have. There are all defenders and very soon Sanchez will be turned into a defender.

That's a fan talking, man city just didn't want to pay any amount, you can't pay more than 30 million plua a player for someone who only has less than six months on his contract. Plus that package he will get. I think he would be the most expensive transfer. that's not a sign of greatness rather desperation

Ince is lying. Yes Man United is a big club with a rich history but Sanchez went there for monetary reasons. He simply couldnt turn down the opportunity of pocketing £400,000 a week and in the process become Man United's highest paid player. Thats the truth and not your HISTORY story

Drunk madala, Sanchez simple wants to go to Cowchester because there's less competition compared to City, at Cowchester he's almost guaranteed game time competing with average players like Lingard, Martial, Rushford and Mata.

Wat a clown to believe such nonsense..da only reason y he is not joining city is because city didnt want to pay the inflated price given for Sanchez..otherwise united had no chance with their negative approach to football
