Alexis Sanchez deal not done yet, says Man United boss Jose Mourinho

Robin van Persie

"Maybe it's because there are two opportunities in Manchester, and if you think you can go to one or the other, then maybe one club thinks I don't want him anymore".

Sanchez played under Guardiola at Barcelona but City pulled out of the race to sign the Chile global as they were reportedly unhappy with the escalating costs of doing the deal.

Last summer alone, he spent more than £200 million on five players, with around £120 million of that going on three full-backs, in Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo.

"There is no point in trying to hide or deny but it is not done at all. With a match tomorrow, I want to switch off and focus on what is the most important thing".

Mkhitaryan is, without doubt, a good player and a wonderful technician, but the bare facts are that, at the age of 28, he has enjoyed just one storming season at the top level in his senior career - the 2015/16 campaign with Borussia Dortmund.

Mkhitaryan has been left out of United's squad for its Premier League game against Burnley on Saturday while negotiations continue.

Instead, he blamed the media for "distorting his meaning", according to the confidant who spoke on the condition of anonymity. He then is said to have asked why the USA could not accept more immigrants from countries like Norway instead of from Haiti.

Sanchez, 29, is out of contract in June and is thought to have agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club. "In the end, what I know right now is he is still an Arsenal player", the Catalan said, before offering wishes of goodwill in the week he celebrated his 47th birthday.

"Normally we try to be stable with the wages of the players because I think it is good for the team and stability of the club", stated Guardiola.

Liverpool Jurgen Klopp offered his take on Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United in his press conference ahead of his side's trip to Swansea.

"I respect Manchester United because they generate the money they pay to the players with their own resources, so you have to respect that", said Wenger.

As for Mkhitaryan, Mourinho said the Armenian will not be involved against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Whenever that contract is signed, Mourinho is clearly putting plans in place for this summer at Old Trafford and he admits that United's pursuit of Sanchez is a break from the norm for him. "However most of the bets were laid at 2/1 and shorter so no real cause for alarm and we take both transfers on the chin!" It's going to happen in the future.
