United and Arsenal have finally reached an agreement on a sensational swap deal, which will see Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction.

All the details have reportedly been ironed out between the two clubs, with the deal now said to be a straight swap, whilst the players have also agreed their deals with the clubs.

The Mirror have now published a photo [above] of Sanchez arriving at United's Carrington training base where he's due to undergo his medical and complete his move to Old Trafford.

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

Sky Sports report Sanchez's four-and-a-half-year deal will total a whopping £100m.

"I can not understand anybody wanting to leave Arsenal", said Wenger.

Arsenal allowed Sanchez to join Manchester United on Monday to avoid losing the Chile worldwide on a free transfer when his contract expired at the end of the season.

Rep. Meehan removed from ethics committee over sexual harassment settlement
Congressman Patrick Meehan has been removed from the committee investigating claims of sexual harassment inside the U.S. Capitol, because he allegedly used thousands of dollars in taxpayer money to settle his own sexual harassment complaint.

Given Sanchez's contract expires in the summer, and the Gunners seemed willing, if necessary, to lose him for nothing, acquiring Mkhitaryan could represent something of a coup if Arsene Wenger can integrate him quickly into the starting XI.

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

"It happens only one way if the other way happens as well", Wenger said.

"He's a player who knows the Premier League, his goal record. he's an experienced worldwide. If you want to have a bet, I'd say it could happen". So close, so close, so close, if it doesn't happen it's not going to happen.

"I expect soon or never", he said after United's 1-0 win at Burnley.

"He will bring his ambition, drive and personality, qualities that make a Manchester United player and a player that makes the team stronger and the supporters proud of their club dimension and prestige", said a delighted Mourinho.

Arsenal hope the deal will go through in the next few days and they will then press ahead with their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with the German club wanting Olivier Giroud as part of the deal.
