Mkhitaryan on Instagram: 'What am I getting for my birthday?'”

Arsene Wenger reiterated that the club wouldn't let Sanchez go without a replacement and the Red Devils are ready to provide it from their own ranks.

Arsenal are hoping to soften the blow of Sánchez's departure by signing Mkhitaryan, who was in London for a medical yesterday, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the 28-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward.

Sky Sports News understands it will be a straight swap deal between United and Arsenal but as of Sunday morning, the paperwork on every aspect of deal has yet to be signed off.

Mourinho confirmed that both Ed Woodward, the club's executive vice-chairman, and Matt Judge, their head of corporate finance, were working on a swap deal that will give the United manager another attacking option.

Arsenal's hesitance in sorting out the ongoing contract issues with Sanchez and Özil has often been criticised by the media, as well as former players. Even though he probably should've been sold in the summer, getting a player like Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return is the best of a bad situation.

As well as earning a bumper deal at Arsenal, his agent, Raiola also secured a hefty pay-off on the last two-and-a-half years of Mkhitaryan's United contract, even threatening scupper the Sanchez deal if they did not pay up.

Alexis Sanchez was always likely to leave Arsenal this season but few would've predicted that he would've ended up at Manchester United.
