Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has finally discussed the transfer swap deal involving Chilean international Alexis Sanchez and Man United attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The French tactician says the swap involving Chile star Alexis Sanchez and United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan could happen, though the manager would not say precisely when.
This seems a big boost for Arsenal, with British publication the Guardian playing down any worries over the Armenian’s willingness to complete the move to the Emirates, despite doubts earlier on.
They quote Arsene Wenger as stating the playmaker’s wage demands won’t be an issue, despite his representative Mino Raiola stating that could be a major stumbling block earlier this week.
With the Gunners potentially also prepared to lose Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil as he moves closer to the expiration of his Arsenal contract, the United star could be a proper replacement in that attacking midfield role.
While the ex-Dortmund star hasn’t really hit top shape at the Theatre of dreams, he seems more of an Arsene Wenger player.
Losing the Chilean to Jose Mourinho’s team will undoubtedly be a major blow, but it may be smart for the Gunners to sell the 29-year-old forward instead of risking losing the exciting attacker for nothing when his contract runs out in the summer.
