Now according to BBC, Manchester United, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will have a medical on Sunday and Monday after the Armenian paperwork for his transfer was completed on Saturday.
The length of Mkhitaryan’s contract at Arsenal, with the former Borussia Dortmund’s salary is undisclosed. Arsene Wenger had earlier said that Sanchez would only join the Gunners if Mkhitaryan moved to the Emirates.
The Chile international missed our 4-1 thrashing of Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace side on Saturday because he was travelling to Manchester United.
Wenger as quoted said:
“He didn’t play because you cannot drive up north and play football at the same time.”
Meanwhile, Man United manager Jose Mourinho said a deal to sign the Arsenal player was ‘very close’ following the Red Devils’ 1-0 win at Burnley on Saturday.
Man United beat Arsenal to the signing of Mkhitaryan when he signed for the Manchester giants for £26.3m from BvB back in the summer of 2016.
