[Photo] Alexis Sanchez arrives at Carrington ahead of Man Utd medical

Manchester United are on the verge of signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

In the past few minutes the Chilean superstar has been pictured arriving at our Carrington training facilities before he undergoes a medical to complete his move.

The 29-year-old is set to join United after refusing to sign a new contract with Arsenal, with his current deal set to expire in the summer.

Arsenal have agreed to sell Alexis Sanchez this month in an exchange deal for United flop Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

We reported earlier in the week that we had agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal that will see the forward earn a staggering £14 million-per-year after tax.

For the deal to be complete, both Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan need to complete their medicals with their respective clubs.  The Armenian is due to have his in North London over today and Monday.

The Mirror have just published the photo below showing Alexis Sanchez arriving at our Carrington training base where is set to undergo his medical.

Both players will need their work permits approved before they can complete the deal, which many now expect to go through on Monday.
