Alexis Sanchez is nearing a Manchester United transfer following reports that he is, or is currently in, Manchester for his medical that will seal his move away from Arsenal. The Chilean forward, who has been at the north London club for 3.5 years, has been a doubt to sign a contract extension with the Gunners for nearly a year-and-a-half, and the saga involving Alexis and Arsenal appears to be extremely close to ending.

There has yet to be news to come out that the other player involved in this unique transfer, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, is taking his medical, however it’s widely assumed the timing of these two transfers - now separate transactions for each club as opposed to a swap, which involves many complicated moving parts and is rarely utilized in the sport - means news of the Armenian midfielder’s medical at Arsenal is probably hours away.

Stay tuned to these pages as we keep you posted on all the news surrounding one of the more high-profile Arsenal transfers in recent memory.
