Arsene Wenger has finally revealed that Alexis Sanchez could officially become a Manchester United player today.
According to Wenger, the deal was likely to happen within 24 hours. If United wanted Sanchez to play against Burnley, they have to sign him within midday.
As part of the deal, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will also move to Arsenal although he was pictured training at Carrington on Thursday.
If it’s a possibility, it’s because I like the player,” Wenger said.
“We played many times against him when he was at Dortmund. He certainly appreciated the quality of our game and the way we play football. That’s why certainly he loves the club as well.”
Jose Mourinho will also have a press conference at lunchtime to make announcements.
