Premier League

Top 5 Legends Players Who Played For Both Manchester United And Arsenal

Manchester United and Arsenal have long been rivals in the Premier League. And it's not always easy for club rivals to share or sell players from side to side. But that happened between the Red Devbs and North London.

Now let's look at five of the best legend players (5) who have played for Manchester United and Arsenal:

1.Robin van Persie

Club Team: Feyenoord

Current club team:Retired

Position: Centre-Forward

Height:1,83 m

Total fees Transfer:€41.70m

Van Persie's arrival at Old Trafford for £ 24 million in the summer of 2012 is the most controversial transfer on this list and is easily the most successful player in both Premier League clubs.

The former Feyenoord player has reached world class level in eight seasons with Arsenal and has become one of the best strikers in Europe as an attacking midfielder.

With 37 goals in his last season with the Gunners, Van Persie continued his fertile performance to his new boss. In his first season at United, he lost 30 times and strengthened United with inadequate strength for the top 20th title.

Although he never managed to get his first season back at United, Van Persie was still respected at Old Trafford for his contribution to the title.

2.Danny Welbeck

Position: Watford

Club: Watford

Height: 1.85m

Total transfer fees:€20.00 mil

Danny Welbeck scored several goals against his former Manchester United team. The biggest goal he has scored since leaving Old Trafford was the FA Cup quarter-finals three years ago. He celebrated the decisive goal and the Red Devils fans were not satisfied.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said he was a big spoonful of bitter rivals, but that was not the case. The England striker has only scored 27 goals in 105 matches for the Gunners. While in Manchester, he scored 29 goals in 142 matches. He has won a number of trophies, including the Premier League title, League Cup, Community Shield, and FIFA Club World Cup. This weekend he will want to punish his former club.

3.Alexis Sanchez

Position: Centre-Forward

Height: 1,68 m

Current Team:Inter Milan

Total transfer fees: €106.65m

Alexis Sanchez, Manchester United

Once it appeared, it was almost certain that it was destined

Manchester City was considered a real coup when United managed to secure Sanchez Arsenal's service in January last year and sent Henrich Mkhitaryan next time as part of an exchange deal.

But for more than a year, Sanchez has been considered one of the worst characters in United's history. The 30-year-old Chilean could not produce anything as he showed in his peak years at Barcelona and Arsenal.

Currently injured and with United manager Ole Gunnar Solsker preferring a younger alternative to attacking positions, it seems that Sanchez's woeful time at Old Trafford won't be long.

4.Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Current Team:AS Roma

Position:Attacking Midfield

Height: 1,77 m

Total transfer fees: €112.80m

Like 18 months with United, Mkhitaryan was beaten and absent for Arsenal after replacing Old Trafford for the Emirates in January 2018.

There has never been any doubt about Armenian talent and creativity, but 30 years have struggled to find some consistency since arriving in England from Borussia Dortmund during Jose Mourinho's first summer for United in 2016.

Even though none of them burned the world, Arsenal might think they ended a better exchange deal, even though Mkhitaryan scored nine goals and 12 assists for the Gunners, compared to Sanchez's five goals and nine assists for United.

5.Andy Cole

Current Team Retired


Total transfer fees: €26.75m

Andy Cole probably has no memory of his time at Arsenal between 1989 and 1992. He only played twice for him and scored 0 goals. The former England striker has fond memories of his time at Manchester United. He joined the Red Devils in 1995 and continues to win all available club-level trophies.

Cole was in a famous team that held high in 1999. He scored 121 goals in 275 matches. He lifted the UEFA Champions League, 5 championship titles, 2 FA Cups and 2 Community Shields.
