Picture: Alexis Sanchez to Man United ‘confirmed’ by star, fans react on twitter


All is now set for Alexis Sanchez to be confirmed as a Manchester United player despite claims by Arsene Wenger that a deal is not close. Man United striker Romelu Lukaku has taken to Snapchat to tacitly reveal that the Chile forward is on his way to the fortress of Old Trafford.

Reports have indicated that Sanchez agreed personal terms for the switch on Sunday and he will be paid a whopping £350,000-a-week in wages. The deal is also expected to be a three year deal worth £35million.

Sanchez refused to sign a contract extension with the Gunners as they showed lack of ambition on footballing matters and it appears that the Red Devils will be able to make him realise his dream.

His would be new team mate and striking partner Romelu Lukaku took to Snapchat and posted three images or emojis – the emojis were a Chile flag with an arrow after it pointing to a devil’s emoji, which invariable suggested that the 29-year is on the verge on becoming a Red Devil.

The image was deleted by the Belgian after it drew the attentions of several fans. However, a lot of conclusions have been made following the post.

Man United fans have already started to grin from ear to ear over the news. Some fans took to twitter and wrote:

“Do you follow lukaku on snapchat? I think he’s just broken the news sanchez to man united is virtually a done deal.”

‘LOOOOOOOOOL Lukaku confirming Sanchez.”

“Lukaku on Snapchat…Alexis Sanchez is on his way to Old Trafford! What a coup!”

Nonetheless, there are now claims that the handle rlukaku9 is not the verified account of the Belgian on Snapchat but Romelu.Lukaku10.
