Manchester United target and Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has been spotted in London ahead of his impending transfer to Jose Mourinho’s side.
Reports seem to grow by the minute with the latest news seemingly signifying that there could be announcement from the club as early as today evening.
United have surprisingly been involved with the Sanchez transfer drama since the start of the January transfer window, beating fierce rivals Manchester City to his signature.
The Sky Blues seemed favourites for the Chilean international but things have since swung United’s way with reports of Henrikh Mkhitaryan being involved in the transfer as well.
Mkhitaryan was left out of the club’s last match day squad as was Alexis with the Gunners and it appears as though a straight swap may be on the cards.

However, Sanchez’s arrival may threaten their improvement and halt their growth as players but their have been rumours that may relieve supporters.
Jose Mourinho is said to have saved the iconic number seven shirt and right wing position for Alexis so fans can rest assured that indeed they can have the best of both worlds.
