Alexis Sanchez has revealed he once told Sir Alex Ferguson it was his dream to play for Manchester United.
The Chilean finally got his wish after completing his move to the Red Devils on Monday afternoon. The transfer sees Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction, joining Arsenal.
After signing for United, Sanchez revealed he's dreamed of joining the club since he was a 'young boy'.
And the 29-year-old opened up on a 20-minute conversation he had with former boss Ferguson.
"Since I was a young boy I've always said that my dream was to play for Manchester United and I'm not just saying that because I'm here now and today it's come true," Sanchez told MUTV.
"I always said as a kid that I'd like to play for United, and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it.
"We chatted for around twenty minutes and I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.
"It really is a massive club, very powerful, and so now, when I got the opportunity to come here.
"I looked at the badge and my hairs just stood up on end because it's a powerful club and biggest in England."
