Alexis Sanchez Pictured Arriving for Man United Medical

GK Thibaut Courtois

The Red Devils beat Arsenal to Mkhitaryan's signature when he signed for the Old Trafford club for £26.3m from Borussia Dortmund in July 2016.

Alexis Sanchez arrived on Sunday at Manchester United's training headquarters to seal his move from Arsenal, sources have told ESPN FC.

Both players are set to undergo medicals on Sunday ahead of the deal, with Sanchez jetting in with his agent Fernando Felicevich.

Sanchez was highly tipped to re-join former manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, however recent developments in the past week have seen the Premier League leaders pull out of a deal with the Chilean winger due to Arsenal's transfer fee.

The Mirror said the deals may not be officially completed until Monday as both Sanchez and Mkhitaryan are non-EU players and must have their work permits ratified by their new clubs.

"When a player of that ability comes along, I think you got to be in the market for him", Irwin, who played over 500 games for United during 12 trophy-laden seasons, told Reuters.

Steve McClaren has warned Alexis Sanchez 's wages could create dressing-room disharmony at Manchester United. I think it's so close, so close - so close that if it doesn't happen (soon) it's not going to happen.




Arsene Wenger has revealed how the protracted saga of Alexis Sanchez's future cast a cloud of uncertainty over the Arsenal dressing room.

It was claimed the two clubs had made a decision to divide the deals to work on them separately, with Sanchez moving to Old Trafford for a fee in the region of £35 million.

"The deal happens only one way, if the other way happens as well, that's why it takes longer as well because it has to be co-ordinated".

The Armenian has had his moments, and played a crucial role in United's Europa League triumph last season, but has found himself on the outside looking in for Jose Mourinho this season. "I loved the way he played - and maybe that was the reason to support Arsenal".

"If you want to have a bit, it could happen".

The form of Anthony Martial means many United fans are anxious that Sanchez may be played on the left, over the Frenchman and Marcus Rashford.
