Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has now agreed personal terms with Manchester United, and the only the thing holding up his move to Old Trafford is the fact that United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is yet to agree terms with Arsenal, according to Sky Sports correspondent Kaveh Solhekol.

In a hectic night of speculation surrounding the Chile international’s future, it was also revealed that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak have decided they believe both Arsenal and the player are looking for too much money, and have decided to end their interest in bringing the 29-year-old attacker to The Etihad.
Jose Mourinho also admitted earlier that he left Mkhitaryan out of his squad for tonights 3-0 victory over Stoke due to concerns over whether he was mentally ready to play, due to the fact he may be leaving Old Trafford as part of a potential transfer.
Although, Sky Sports are reporting tonight that Chelsea are also interested in signing Sanchez, it does seem as if Manchester United are now clear favourites to secure his services in the coming days.
