Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal

Jose Mourinho provides update on Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan transfer sagas

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.

British media reports say he will seal his move to United this week with Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan joining Arsenal in a swop deal.

Sanchez arrived at Carrington after lunchtime on Sunday to undergo a medical.

Alexis Sanchez?'s move to Manchester United? edges even closer, as he posts a video of himself boarding a private jet.

The Chilean's transfer will reportedly cost Manchester United £180million (nearly US$249.47) over the four-and-a-half-year deal.

Sanchez's move is not expected to be officially announced until Monday, with the complications that have delayed the deal for almost a week were down to the complications of the swap, as well as Mkhitaryan's demands.

Mkhitaryan might not have been a huge success at Manchester United, but playing under Arsene Wenger along with a mobile striker like Alexandre Lacazette might just get the best out of the 28-year-old playmaker. The Chilean global, linked with a move away from the Emirates and on the verge of signing for Manchester United for over $50 million wasn't announced in the starting eleven or on the bench, making it seem as if his move to United is even more imminent. "I think it is so close, so close, so close that if it doesn't happen it's not going to happen".

The breakthrough came in what officials are calling a serial murder case and which has stirred outrage across the country. Reports say the culprit disappeared from the neighbourhood shortly after his release.

On average, Mkhitaryan completes 51.47 passes per Premier League match compared to Sanchez's 48.16, while his ball retention is also significantly better.

Jose Mourinho is ready to cut his losses with Henrikh Mkhitaryan Jose Mourinho is also likely to sign a new deal at the Premier League club - surely there are a few things to celebrate?

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

"If you ask me if I think he is coming, I think so, but I have no confirmation", the Portuguese told the BBC.

Players sometimes need to feel important and loved by the club.

The 1-0 win was secured on the back of a fifth successive clean sheet for United, with Smalling in fine form at the back.
