"Manchester United Won't Be My Last Club" - Old Trafford Star

And the Chilean global has now opened up on his move away from North London, revealing what manager Arsene Wenger said to try to stop him from leaving the club.

Sanchez has however struggled to make his mark for the Red Devils - scoring just once in all competitions. The 29-year-old earns a fortune at Old Trafford, a reported £450,000 a week but has come under the criticism from the United faithful regarding his recent performances.

"My father who is now in Heaven was a supporter of La U and I think the truth is that a lot of my family would like me to end up there", Sanchez told a Chilean TV station, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

On the weights of playing for United, Sanchez stated: "The weight doesn't prevent me, it plays to support me".

"He told me, 'I want you to sign here because you are the best player in the team'".

However, things weren't always so rosy for the Belgium global, who went through a goal drought of his own during the winter months, and he has backed Sanchez to get out of his slump and become a major asset for Manchester United.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has jumped to the defence of teammate Alexis Sanchez. "Arsene understood it at last, we ended up on good terms, he congratulated me and there was no problem", Sanchez said. No Chilean has ever played here.

'When this World Cup finishes, I think I'll be a bit calmer. "So, I don't want the fans to have lower expectations, I want the fans to have high expectations because I want the players to have high expectations too".
