Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez’s switch from Arsenal to Manchester United this January has got the approval of a celebrated captain and defender at the club, Nemanja Vidic.

The former Barcelona forward is a valuable asset and has the experience of playing in major competitions like the UEFA Champions League. Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved to Arsenal as part of a swap deal.

Vidic said: “He is a quality player and will make a difference in the Premier League. Personally, my view is that he should have come earlier, joined the players in pre-season. Sanchez will help us win trophies the club is fighting for, the Champions League is an important one. He has been at Barcelona, has experience of that level of competition and will be useful definitely.”
