Alexis Sanchez makes vow to Man United fans
Alexis Sanchez feels he will be able to hit his best form for Man United this season
Alexis Sanchez believes that his first proper summer break in years will serve him in good stead for the season ahead with Manchester United.
The Chile international is currently gearing up for his first full season at Old Trafford after he signed for the Red Devils from Arsenal in the January transfer window earlier this year.
Sanchez has had busy summers for the last few years due to his various commitments with Chile, and this has been the first year in which he has been able to enjoy a proper rest ahead of the new campaign.
And the 29-year-old attacker feels that he will now be in top shape for the season ahead as he bids to try and help Manchester United win the title this season.
Speaking in an interview quoted on Manchester United’s website, Sanchez said: “I can’t remember the last time I had a break and a long vacation.
“It served me well to rest, to clear my head a little bit and get stronger for the season.
“I’m already off to a great start. It’s been years since I’ve had a pre-season like this one, and I hope I’m in good shape to face Leicester.
“The first four or five months were a learning period. Now I want to go all the way, I want to fight for everything. I am preparing myself mentally and physically to face all that lies ahead.
“Now that I know my team-mates, I can focus on what I want to win. I am here to demonstrate the quality I’m here for. The time has come for United to win more trophies. We need to be fighting among the best.”
The Red Devils will be aiming to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season as Jose Mourinho looks to guide them to the top-flight crown.
Manchester United ended last season without a trophy and they have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.
