Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits relief after Alexis Sanchez exit

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits relief after Alexis Sanchez exit

He said the Chilean had moved from a "fantastic club to a giant club" in the swap deal that saw Armenia midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan head the other way.

Fans have been waiting in anticipation of seeing their latest signing turn out in the famous number 7 shirt and they could well get their wish as the Red Devils travel to Somerset.

Speaking about Mourinho's new deal, United's executive vice-chairman Woodward said: "Jose has already achieved a great deal as Manchester United manager and I am delighted that he has agreed to extend his commitment until at least 2020". "I think everybody knows what type of player he is and what he did at Arsenal".

"I believe that Mkhi is going to be even better than he was with us", the 54-year-old said.

Mourinho thanked the club for their support, saying that being manager of Manchester United is an "honour". Therefore, Mourinho is unlikely to take too many risks with his starting XI as he chases arguably his best chance of silverware this season.

He can play on the left and on the right, as a striker and behind the striker.

For all his league success at Juventus and Chelsea, boss Antonio Conte has yet to win a cup as a manager.

Mkhitaryan had a mixed spell at Old Trafford after his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2016, enduring a slow start to life at the club before playing his way into Mourinho's plans last season. If you cannot afford, you have to say "no, sorry, can't do that".

"He has been in England a long time", Mourinho added.

It is Yeovil, however, who could really claim the biggest scalp. "What happens is that because they are not competing with Real Madrid and Barcelona people think it's not the same as it was, but they have a lot of fans around the world".

This could well be called United's second "winter signing" after they secured Alexis Sanchez earlier in the week.

"We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United".

"He will bring his ambition, drive and personality - qualities that make a Manchester United player and a player that makes the team stronger and the supporters proud of their club dimension and prestige".
