Sanchez, Mkhitaryan deals close – Wenger
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United is “likely to happen” in the next 24 hours.
Wenger also said Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s wages will not be a problem in a potential swap deal and that Mesut Ozil will not be leaving the club in January.
“I’ve worked on transfers for 30 years so it is likely to happen but at any moment things can break down,” Wenger said.
That’s how the transfer market is, so as long as it’s not over the line you have to accept that it can as well not happen. These kinds of things are never guaranteed
When asked whether Mkhitaryan was involved in the deal, Wenger said: “My understanding is yes.The wages would not be a problem.
“This would be an exchange of players and I think one would replace the other. Are we still on the transfer market after that? Yes.”
