The swap deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Arsenal is an interesting one.

They're two really good players who I like watching. Mkhitaryan, if you look at his previous seasons, has had lots of consistency, assists and goals. He's a really intelligent player but he seemed not to be Jose Mourinho's cup of tea.

I think Arsenal have got a really good footballer and it's a good swap, especially for a player they were going to lose in a few months time for free, especially as they turned down Manchester City's offer.

United have got someone who is at the peak of his game in Sanchez and I think they have got the better deal.

Mesut Özil is the leader of the pack there but if he goes, they have Mkhitaryan there. Mourinho's style of football may not have suited him or he didn't work hard enough off the ball.

He'll have to do that at Arsenal but he'll also have a point to prove too.

I like watching him play; technically he's very good but we don't know where he's going to plat though. Will he be on the right or as a number 10?

We don't know. His form has picked up in recent weeks but sometimes in a season where it hasn't always gone for United, he's thought of a a bit of a passenger but he's a fantastic footballer on his day.

Now if Sanchez doesn't score at Old Trafford, it could be a sign that it really is Jose's style of football because the Chilean is a goalscorer.

Sanchez is a player who wants to win for his team, which might be a positive spin for Mourinho and where he plays him.

Yes, you could see him sulking at Arsenal but he's got passion and he wants his team to win.

Sanchez, who has inherited an iconic shirt number too, knows he's a top footballer and he's got goals and assists in him – he's such a creative player so we know that if he doesn't score, then Mourinho takes that attacking flair away from him.

We've seen at Arsenal that Arsene Wenger has given him a free reign to go and score, but whether Mourinho will pull it down a bit, I don't know.

I'm certainly looking forward to watching him at Manchester United, that's for sure.
