Rooney: Sanchez Can Lift Man Utd Star's Game

Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney believes the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford will help lift a particular Red Devils star's game.

Rooney: What Mourinho Must Do With Pogba

The Chilean completed his move to Old Trafford last month, in a swap deal that saw Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan go to Arsenal.

The Everton striker believes Sanchez will prove to be an excellent signing for Jose Mourinho's side, and feels he will help improve striker Romelu Lukaku's overall game.

"For me, he's the perfect player for Manchester United. He's got aggression, he's got passion, desire and you can see he's a winner," Rooney said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme.

"They are the players you want, almost like when (Carlos) Tevez joined United (from West Ham in 2007). Them players lift the other players and get an extra 10% out of the players around him. I think Alexis Sanchez will do that.

"I think that's what Manchester United have lacked, players around Lukaku who are going to push Lukaku on as well and try to help him get a bit more freedom and score more goals."

Sanchez has made three appearances for Red Devils so far, scoring one goal and assisting another strike.
