It’s still unclear whether Mkhitaryan move to Arsenal is a direct swap deal for Sanchez imminent United move or a separated deal.
The 28-year old star joined the Red devils in 2016 summer transfer window but has failed to nail a regular starting place in Jose Mourinho’s team.
He has only managed to play a bit role in United team this season and a move to Emirate stadium could rejuvenate his dying career.
Before United plan to switch him for Sanchez services, former club Borussia Dortmund and other top clubs including Inter Milan was interested the Armenia star signature.
The deal involving Mkhitaryan and Sanchez ought to have been finalized since last week but due Arsenal failure to reach agreement with the star, the deal has been delayed.
Mkhitaryan currently earns £140,000-a-week at Manchester United and it’s yet to be seen if the Gunners will be able to match such a huge wage.
