Finally, Manchester United have gotten their man; so also Arsenal as both clubs agreed a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Who got the better deal? Well you would have to say United did; as the numbers and the impact of Alexis in the Premier League are there to see; however Arsenal have also gotten a top quality player who could thrive in a team that pays little or no attention to the defensive side of the game; it is a new lease of life for the Armenian International.
