Alexis Sanchez says a desire to feel important and loved was behind his move to Manchester United from Arsenal. The Chile international said manager Jose Mourinho's efforts to make him feel wanted at United was an important factor in his decision. "He indicated it is important for the club for me to be here," Sanchez said.

"The club itself cared about me joining, and I got the impression that they were keen for me to come here and wear the number seven shirt. Players sometimes need to feel important and loved by the club. That was one of the things that attracted me, along with the manager, who is a person who won everything and he's a manager who likes to win," he added. "So yes, I'm fulfilling a dream and I hope to give my very best and win many trophies at this club."
