Alexis Sanchez's dogs Atom and Humber sport their own United shirts
While the money may have cleared and all the paperwork been signed, Alexis Sanchez's transfer to Manchester United still wasn't considered 100 percent complete until the Chilean sealed the deal officially on Tuesday evening.
For that's when Sanchez finally posted photos of his beloved labrador dogs, Atom and Humber, wearing replica United kits on social media.
Such is his love for his dogs, Sanchez even mentioned Atom and Humber during his first ever interview as a United player.
"They are my mates, my kids, the ones who are with me every day and who I spend time with," he told the club's official website.
"They see me when I get home tired and feeling a bit low, and they can understand you and how you are every day. They are the ones who are there for you after a defeat or a win, and they are always waiting for you with the same expression on their faces. It's worth a lot that they understand you and just want to make you happy."
Say what you want about the guy, but he certainly adores those animals.
