Alexis Sanchez New Five-bedroom Mansion in Manchester
Alexis Sanchez appears to be settling into life in Manchester after the new United man was spotted viewing a £2million mansion on Wednesday afternoon.
The former Arsenal star, who has just become the Premier League‘s highest earner on £350,000 a week, arrived to view a plush five-bedroom mansion in Greater Manchester just two days after signing for his new club.
Sanchez’s potential pad is situated just down the road from his Chile international team-mate Claudio Bravo, now a direct rival on the club stage at Manchester City.
Sportsmail can exclusively reveal pictures of the 29-year-old driving up to the property in his £150k Bentley GT supercar, before he took a look around his prospective home, which includes a sun terrace and a cinema room.
One other feature that may tip the balance is the inclusion of a piano room, with a bar. Sanchez’s arrival video at United showed the footballer playing a club chant on the instrument, and he is believed to be a proficient pianist.
Sanchez is currently staying in an £816-a-night room in the Lowry Hotel, a city-centre residence where manager Jose Mourinho lives, while he finds himself a permanent house near his new club.
When he arrived at the property on Wednesday afternoon, the multi-million pound footballer was flanked by a fleet of cars as he brought his entourage with him to view the property.
Sanchez will surely be glad for the vehicle space at the house should he decide to buy it, with a three-car garage included in the £1,995,000 price.
There are five double bedrooms – more than enough space for pals to stay round – and the property is close to plenty of other Premier League footballers from the likes of United, City, Liverpool and Everton.
Above the garage is a purpose-built gym, and the garden includes a large patio space with a seating area perfect for a summer BBQ or two, when the weather allows.
While he decides on a new property in the Manchester area, Sanchez’s attention will turn to the pitch, where he will soon make his Manchester United debut.
He could make his bow as soon as Friday night, when the might of Manchester United travel to Yeovil Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
