Alexis Sanchez defends Manchester United move

Alexis Sanchez has been offered the No 7 shirt at Manchester United if he joins

But then he added something that nearly ensures that Sanchez's move to United is only a matter of time. "Paperwork complete, Mkhitaryan will undergo a medical over the next two days".

Sanchez may therefore provide the ruthless cutting edge in front of goal Mourinho craves, while Mkhitaryan appears to fit well with Arsenal's passing style. "That's hard so that's why I chose to leave him out".

I didn't take him because there is a question of him moving to Manchester United and you can not drive up north and as well play football, said Wenger.

The 28-year-old Gabon striker was left out as his side drew 1-1 at Hertha Berlin on Friday, but Wenger said: "Aubameyang, no".

"I respect that decision and I move forward to look for another solution because the stability of the club is the most important thing".

Some even went as far as suggesting Mkhitaryan's numerous posts about his birthday were a "dig" at the club for their failure to wish him well.


However, the breakthrough meant Sanchez was allowed to leave the squad and the Mirror claim the Chilean global travelled to Manchester where he's expected to have undergone his medical today ahead of his move to United.

"I think as soon Bardo was on a yellow card, the instructions were just to give it to Anthony [Martial] as soon as we can because, when he is running at people, he is a danger", Smalling explained to reporters.

Wenger also made it clear that Arsenal is not on the back foot at the end of the deal and has already found a replacement for the Chile global.

"It was very hard, we played against a fearless team, a team that plays with their strength and a team that knows how to get points - that's why season after season they are in a comfortable position".

Wenger said the move wasn't yet "over the line". "And we are still active in the transfer market and trying to bring players in", he added as per Goal. The players showed desire, produced the workrate and the energy they needed in the second half.

Wenger's confidence comes on the heels of reports terms have already been agreed for Mkhitaryan and Sanchez to swap clubs.
