Mino Raiola clarifies Alexis Sanchez-Henrikh Mkhitaryan Arsenal-Man United swap deal

Mino Raiola clarifies Alexis Sanchez-Henrikh Mkhitaryan Arsenal-Man United swap deal”

But, apparently, the Red Devils will not have to give a single penny to Arsenal because the deal would be a straight swap - Sanchez for Mkhitaryan - with no fee involved.

Manchester United is not going to sign Sanchez unless Mkhi agrees to join Arsenal.

Mkhitaryan was left out of United's squad to face Stoke on Monday with Mourinho claiming he had been affected by transfer speculation and admitting it is "possible" he could leave Old Trafford.

Guardiola had wanted to reunite with the Chilean and launched a bid in the region of £60m for the Arsenal forward last summer.

United are reportedly favourites to secure the services of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, with neighbours City out of the race and Chelsea rumoured to be launching a late interest, but Pogba hailed the contribution of incumbent centre-forward Lukaku against struggling Stoke.

Raiola adds: "Mkhi is going to do what is best for him".

"We scored two fantastic goals and for me that was the good thing of the first half", Mourinho said.

Mkhitaryan has scored 13 goals in 63 appearances since moving to England from the Bundesliga but has only started two of United's last 16 games.

"Don't forget, Mkhitaryan was in really exceptional form earlier on this season", he told talkSPORT.

Following the 3-0 win over Stoke on Monday night, Mourinho accepted he could leave this month. I'm just trying to protect him and the team, so let's make sure he stays with us or that he leaves us.

In true style, Raiola also adds a zinger to the discussion: "Sánchez is part of the Mkhi deal, not the other way around".

It's ironic that Mourinho, who has been accused of treating Mkhitaryan with disrespect at times, is now dependent on the player to get United's top target in the January window.

And suggestions Chelsea had thrown their hat into the ring were then downplayed by Blues boss Antonio Conte on Tuesday when the Italian said he did not think they were attempting to sign Sanchez.

Asked how confident he was the transfer would be completed, Mourinho replied: "Not confident, but also not unconfident".
