Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, has talked about the deal of Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal’s striker, to Manchester United a few minutes ago.
Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Manchester United are interested in signing the Chilean striker and a deal is progressing with Arsenal which includes a swap of the Armenian international, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, for the Chilean superstar, Alexis Sanchez.
In a pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Burnley, Jose Mourinho said:” I think it’s clear, everyone knows that we are there, for Alexis Sanchez, and especially when Arsene Wenger talks so clearly about it. No point of hiding anything or deny it.”
Moreover, Jose Mourinho confirmed and said:” I don’t know why swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan with Arsenal has not been completed.”
Mourinho insisted that Alexis Sanchez is still an Arsenal player, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a Manchester United player at the moment, but he will be dropped from tomorrow’s match against Burnley away from home in the Premier League.
