Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez is expected to undergo his Manchester United medical later today ahead of his swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Mkhitaryan agreed terms with the Gunners last night to leave only the formalities of the fitness and health checks to get the deal over the line.
Sanchez was left out of Arsenal’s squad for Saturday’s win over Crystal Palace as he travelled up to the North West in preparation for his big move.
The switch was on hold while Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, pushed hard to get the best financial package for his client.
“I expect soon or never,” Mourinho said of the deal. “I think is so close, so close, so close that if it doesn’t happen it’s not going to happen so I am positive.
“I know my people is doing everything they can, the owners with the green light, Mr Woodward working hard with Matt Judge and everybody is giving everything they can and I think they are going to be successful.”
