Alexis Sanchez has claimed that Manchester United are a club with “more history” than Arsenal as he targets the Premier League title with the Red Devils.

The 29-year-old has been adapting to life at Old Trafford after having signed for the Red Devils from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Sanchez moved to Old Trafford as part of the same deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan head to Arsenal towards the end of the winter window.

The Chile international has made something of a mixed start to life at Old Trafford but he was the star of the show as he helped Manchester United to claim a 2-1 win over Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals last weekend.

Sanchez will be hoping to help Manchester United lift the FA Cup trophy this season before taking aim at the Premier League title next term.

And the Chilean has opened up about what he feels the main difference at Manchester United has been for him.

Speaking to MUTV, Sanchez said: “It is very different here. I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year.

“We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I’ve got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win.”

Sanchez could be set to come up against his former club when the Red Devils host Arsenal in the Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United are currently second in the Premier League table.
