According to reports, Manchester United are expected to announce the signing of Alexis Sanchez imminently.
Sanchez completed a medical at United’s Carrington training ground on Sunday afternoon before travelling to Old Trafford to film promotional footage for his unveiling.
An image appearing to show the Arsenal forward posing in a United shirt subsequently leaked on social media.
The Chilean international is expected to be handed the number 7 jersey famously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo before his big move to Real Madrid.
Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager, suggested that there was “no chance” of Sanchez staying at the Emirates.
“I cannot understand anybody wanting to leave Arsenal. But, in 30 years of doing transfers, you learn a lot about human beings,” he said.
“We did what we tried to do and went as far as we could. Even Manchester City moved out of it in the end. That tells you we had no chance to give him a contract.”
The report further claims Henrikh Mkhitaryan will move in the opposite direction as part of the deal as he could be handed the number 7 jersey which will be vacant due to Sanchez Exit.
