It seems as though all we’re now waiting for is an official announcement from Manchester United regarding Alexis Sanchez.
The Chile star is a simply stunning footballer, and, I, for one, cannot wait for him to get started. Before the deal has been announced though, a picture of Sanchez wearing Red Devils colours appeared online.
It came from several outlets including the Daily Express, and although we’re not 100% sure, it looks like Sanchez is fulfilling some United media duties already, and we’ve also been given a huge hint as to what his shirt number could be.
Yes, that’s right, we could well have a new #7 to pin our hopes on for the remainder of the season. However, we’ll certainly be hoping he does much better than the likes of Michael Owen, Angel di Maria and Memphis Depay who all struggled wearing such an iconic shirt number.
Anyway, it’s hard not to get excited about the prospect of Sanchez running out on the Old Trafford turf wearing our colours. This is a guy who is in the upper echelons of the footballing world, and to be able to call him one of our own is a real honour.
I bet he can’t wait to get started, and no doubt his debut will be a proud moment for him and his family.
