[Video] Alexis Sanchez arrives at Manchester airport ahead of medical

Manchester United are expected to conclude the transfer of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal within the next 48 hours.

We have agreed a deal with both the player and club and are now just waiting on both the Chilean and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to complete their medicals before the deal can be made official.

The BBC reported yesterday that Mkhitaryan will undergo his medical with Arsenal today and tomorrow, meaning that we can expect the deal to be announced on Monday.  The deal involves the Armenian going to Arsenal in exchange for the 29-year-old superstar with no money exchanging hands.

Alexis Sanchez has boarded a private plane from North London to Manchester with Yahoo! Sport UK Tweeting video footage in the past couple of minutes of what they claim is Sanchez’s plane landing in the city:

Assuming there are no problems with either players’ medicals and the deal goes through as expected, this will be an unbelievable steal by Ed Woodward and the Manchester United hierarchy.

Alexis Sanchez is one of the best footballers in the world and has been a star for Arsenal over his past three-and-a-half-years following his £35 million move from Barcelona; scoring 60 goals in 122 Premier League appearances.

On the opposite side, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been a huge flop for us in his 18 months with the Red Devils – so getting him off the wage bill will be useful.

Manchester City had originally agreed a deal for Sanchez on summer transfer deadline day but Arsenal pulled out of a deal when they failed to find a replacement in time.  The Citizens then attempted to sign the player again this month before pulling out of a deal after failing to agree to Arsenal’s demands.
