Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, Arsenal transfer news: Henrikh Mkhitaryan bids farewell

MANCHESTER United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that talks are ongoing over a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez, with the Special One insisting the deal is “not done” just yet.

Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Burnley, Mourinho stated that the Chilean would miss the match while again hinting that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be heading to the Emirates in the deal.

“Clearly everyone knows that we are there and especially when the Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did, there is no point in trying to hide or deny,” Mourinho said.

“But [it is] not done, not done at all. In this moment Mkhitaryan our player, Sanchez is an Arsenal player. With a match tomorrow, I want to switch off and focus on what is the most important thing.”
