What Alexis Sanchez said in a message to Arsenal fans

While Sanchez joined Manchester United from Arsenal, Armenian worldwide Henrikh Mkhitaryan went the other way in a rare transfer swap involving two leading English Premier League clubs. Alexis Sanchez has hit out at former Arsenal players who "cause damage" with their media speculation, and insisted he always gave 100 percent for the club.

Arsenal wanted £35million for a player out of contract in the summer and United's willingness to meet Sanchez's wage demands and use a makeweight in Mkhitaryan, who is valued at the Gunners' asking price, allowed a straight swap to take place. But he also aimed a dig at pundits who have questioned his commitment in recent weeks.

However, after both players were granted new work permits on Monday afternoon, United and the Gunners are now in a position where they can confirm that the pair have traded clubs.

"I think that also gets through to the player".

"I want to say thanks to the Technical Staff, to the medical team and all teammates with whom I shared many nice things for the club and especially those people who do not see themselves on the covers", Sanchez said. There have been a lot of young players, he's managed them and they've done very well.

For next year and 2019, the Update revised global growth projections upward by 0.2 percent to 3.9 percent. The IMF said it saw "a stronger push from external demand" and from exports on the Italian economy.


Arsène Wenger said: "Henrikh is a very complete player".

Despite Mkhitaryan's arrival at Arsenal, the departure of two-time Copa America victor Sanchez is likely to increase scrutiny on the contract situation of Mesut Ozil, whose deal will expire in June.

United boss Jose Mourinho also had some parting words for the Armenia worldwide. "I have spent three-and-a-half wonderful years at Arsenal and I bring with me very positive memories of that great club and its fans", he said.

"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".

Mkhitaryan made 39 appearances for Manchester United, scoring five times, and played a big role in their UEFA Europa League campaign last season.
