Jesse Lingard welcomes Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United

As you may have heard, Alexis Sanchez was officially unveiled as a Manchester United player after the Chilean completed his big move from Arsenal.

Jesse Lingard was one of the first United players to welcome Sanchez on board, doing so in his customary style.

It turns out Lingard's assertion that Sanchez has long harboured dreams of representing the Red Devils "mandem" may not be too wide of the mark.

Indeed, an image of the young Chilean star proudly wearing a Manchester United tracksuit soon surfaced on social media.
