The excruciating negotiations between Arsenal and Man United over the swap deal of Alexis Sanchez and Henrik Mkhitarayan has finally ended at last, with the Mirror reporting this morning that Alexis left the Arsenal team’s hotel at 11pm last night to go to Manchester for a medical today.
The report said: Alexis Sanchez is set for his Manchester United medical today after a dramatic breakthrough in his transfer saga.
Mirror Sport understands Sanchez left Arsenal’s team hotel last night just before 11pm and was bound for Manchester to complete his move to Old Trafford.
Sanchez was due to be in the Arsenal squad after Arsene Wenger named 19 players but then got pulled out and said his goodbyes to his team mates after a breakthrough in negotiations.
It appears Arsenal forced United’s hand by picking him but he then dropped out after a dramatic late twist.
Henrik Mkhitaryan is also set to join Arsenal after saying his goodbyes after training on Friday and was left out of the United squad.
There will be a lot of relieved faces in both camps if these reports are true, and although it is much too late for either player to be fielded for their respective clubs this weekend.
I for one can’t wait to see Mkhi line-up for the Gunners as soon as possible as he at least has something to prove and can’t be as disruptive as having Alexis moaning all the time….
