Alexis Sanchez has confirmed that the principle reason he joined Manchester United was to enjoy the Manchester weather.
Sanchez was reportedly desperate to join any club in Manchester so that he could enjoy the tropical climate of the north.
So when Manchester City dropped out due to being unable to give him enough assurance about sun cream supplies and days off to enjoy the sun going down over the Mersey, Sanchez was delighted when United came calling.
“I am told that Manchester is very much like Chile and not cold and miserable like London,” explained the miniature superstar.
“You look at players who play in Manchester, they are all incredibly tanned. Sergio Aguero, David De Gea, Kevin de Bruyne and Paul Pogba all have magnificent skin tone.”
Sanchez stated that this move is not about the money.
“Me moving to Manchester has nothing to do with £500,000 a week,” reassured Sanchez.
“If Manchester United didn’t want me I would move somewhere equally sunny like Burnley, Blackburn or Stockport County.”
