Alexis Sanchez claims he quit Arsenal for Manchester United because he “wanted to develop as a player and win everything”.
The Chilean left the Emirates for a lucrative £500,000-a-week deal with their Premier League rivals in January.
But he insists he moved to Old Trafford for trophies and not money.
In an interview with Gunners legend Thierry Henry on Sky Sports , Sanchez opened up on his decision to quit the Emirates.
He said: “I think that Manchester United, since I was young – and I’m not just saying this because I’m here, I’m an honest guy and I never lie – I think it’s the biggest club in England. That’s what I think.
“There are lots of big clubs, and having played for Arsenal, they are also one of them. It’s a huge club and I was there.
“But coming here, looking at the badge, I think United have to win everything because it’s such a big club. The club crest says it all.
“I came here to win [things]. I left Arsenal because I wanted to develop and learn as a player, and get to experience a new club.
“Manchester United are a huge club on the global stage. I came here to win everything. Otherwise I wouldn’t have come here.”
