‘Alexis Sanchez’s deal was 'cheap', says Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has said Alexis Sanchez was a "cheap" deal for Manchester United, given the lack of a transfer fee for the former Arsenal star, according to UK media, Evening Standard.
The 29-year-old Chile forward's transfer from Arsenal has proved one of the highest-profile deals of the January transfer window.
Sanchez assisted in two goals on his United debut as Mourinho's side overwhelmed Yeovil 4-0 at Huish Park on Friday night to move into the FA Cup fifth round, earning a man-of-the-match award in the process.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved to Arsenal to push the Sanchez deal through, leaving Mourinho pleased with the net gain for United.
"He was cheap wasn't he? A free transfer, that's good," joked Mourinho, over signing Sanchez.
"For that price it's fantastic. I think everybody thinks the same in this country.
"Everybody has to agree he's a fantastic player and it's a plus.
"We have a group of attacking players; Lingard, Lukaku on the bench, Zlatan, Martial at home.
"We have good quality in the group."
Mourinho also stated his belief that Sanchez's missed drugs test was "no one's mistake".
Sanchez failed to inform drugs testers of his whereabouts on Monday, as his transfer from Arsenal was pushed through.
