Antonio Conte says Chelsea were not in race to sign Alexis Sanchez

Antonio Conte says Chelsea were not in race to sign Alexis Sanchez”

Mourinho has been the most successful United manager of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era in terms of silverware but his side finished sixth in the Premier League last term and trail leaders Manchester City by 12 points this season.

The Portuguese coach arrived at Old Trafford at the start of last season as Louis van Gaal's successor, winning the EFL Cup, Europa League and Community Shield in his first campaign.

"We never were in this race", said Conte.

"Yeah, I met him at the time", Wenger said. I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years. And I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.

Woodward praised Mourinho for his "exceptional work rate and professionalism", as well as for "embracing the club's desire to promote top-quality young players".

Mkhitaryan can not take part in this season since he has already played for the tournament in Manchester United's squad.

The Chilean global was officially unveiled as the Reds' new no.7 on Monday after completing his transfer from Arsenal, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving in the opposite direction.

"He indicated it is important for the club for me to be here", Sanchez told MUTV.

The match will be shown live on BBC One and the BBC Sport website.

The former Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss spent three years at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and 2007, returning for a second two-year period between 2013 and 2015.

Should he remain at United for the duration of his new contract, Mourinho's stay would be the longest of his mangerial career.

United's new number seven completed his move to Old Trafford on Monday in a straight swap deal with Arsenal that saw £35million-rated midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan head in the opposite direction.
