Manchester United News: Sanchez Opted For Man Utd Because Utd Are Miles Bigger Then City

Football NewsManchester United News


Alexis Sanchez opted for Manchester United and snubbed Manchester City because Man Utd is "miles bigger" than the noisy neighbour according to Paul Ince (Manchester United News).


Pep Guardiola was just inches away from grabbing the Chilean International who is running out of the contract at end of the season. But Sanchez decided the other way around and poised to join Joes Mourinho’s Red devil.

 

Manchester United the 20-time champions of England hijacked the deal at the last moment, as Sanchez disagreed to reunion with the former Barca boss Pep Guardiola.

 

"Everyone is raving about City. But when it comes to the two clubs, Man United are miles bigger than City. Players would still prefer to go to them over Pep's side – that's a fact. Players won't go to City because they think they're a bigger, more historic club than United. Because they're simply not," Ince told as per Manchester united news

 

"Some might get the quick satisfaction of winning the league this year, but those years of history, and the side that [Jose] Mourinho is building – players want to be a part of that.

 

"This signing only confirms that. Sanchez had the opportunity to go into a team where he could have won a trophy. But he didn't, he chose to go to United because of everything they stand for and that says a lot about the size of the club.

 

"City have some unbelievable players, but winning the league this year doesn't mean anything. They need to do that year upon year and collect trophies to compete with United. That's the true test. They're not serial winners. United are and that's why players want to be there.


"With the Champions League around the corner, this is a huge boost. Sanchez hasn't come to Old Trafford not to play. He's come to show how good he is, on the top stage, which is Europe. He's a special player and the sort that doesn't come around that often, and I'd say United's hopes of winning their fourth European trophy have just got a lot more likely."


Ince – a two-time Premier League winner at Old Trafford – added: "We all presumed Sanchez would join Man City. There was all this talk about how desperate he was to be reunited with Pep Guardiola from their Barcelona days.

 

"Suddenly, Man United is the destination for him, and that is a massive statement from the club. He's one of the best players in the Premier League, and they've had a lot of competition to sign him.
"This is their way of saying: 'Don't belittle us. We're still the biggest club in the league and we can get who we want.'

 

"It seems United, City, Liverpool and Chelsea were all after him. Sanchez choosing United sends a big message to those clubs, especially Man City." Ince concluded.
