The Chile global clarified remarks he made referring to the Gunners' record goalscorer after completing his much-anticipated switch to Old Trafford on Monday. He has been crucial for me in my development as a player and as a person.

At Arsenal, Mkhitaryan has the chance to start again under a manager who was keen to sign him before United swooped first in the summer of 2016.

"It's a dream come true, because I've always dreamed of playing for Arsenal", Mkhitaryan said.

Arsene Wenger has ruled out the prospect of Ozil leaving Arsenal in the January transfer window and the club are reportedly confident that the German will agree to sign a new deal.

But now the Chile forward addressed the situation.

Manchester United's new star appeared to suggest that a conversation with Henry helped him make his mind up over a Gunners exit. That was not necessarily the case for United.

Sanchez scored 80 times in 165 appearances for Arsenal between 2014 and 2018, while he netted 47 goals during his three seasons with Barcelona having made the move to Camp Nou from Udinese.

Sanchez is to add some dynamism and unpredictability to a front line that already includes Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

"I'm not exaggerating, he is one of the best five players in the world".

Record goalscorer and two-time Premier League victor Henry did work at Arsenal as an under-18 coach, before quitting to focus on his pundit work for SkySports at the request of Arsene Wenger, who felt both roles were incompatible.

Chileans welcomed the end of the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga yesterday after he announced he had become a Manchester United player and commentators expressed pride at his huge salary.

Wenger rejected the theory that Sanchez was disrupting the harmony in the Arsenal team in his final months there.

'You look at players and what are their qualities, what can they give, ' Wenger said about the possibility of Aubemeyang and Mkhitaryan reuniting in Arsenal's starting XI.

Sanchez could make his United debut in Friday's FA Cup clash with Yeovil Town.
