Arsenal, United complete swap deal for Sanchez, Mkhitaryan

Shaw has enjoyed a resurgence in recent weeks- earlier this season it looked like his United career might be over

First Alexis Sanchez's first time in a Manchester United shirt, obviously taking selfies at the team's Carrington training ground, and now Henrikh Mkhitaryan in Arsenal kit.

However, Spanish football expert Balague has claimed that Sanchez will not be officially presented to the media as a Manchester United player until Tuesday.

Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were spotted at Liverpool's immigration office earlier today to finalise the deals. His transfer dealings this January have allowed me to ideal the spelling of both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, neither easy names to spell.

While Van Persie departed a year before his contract expired after, like 29-year-old Sanchez, rejecting a new deal, the Chilean has followed the same road for a knockdown price six months before he could walk out of the club for nothing.

Arsene Wenger has revealed how the protracted saga of Alexis Sanchez's future cast a cloud of uncertainty over the Arsenal dressing room. "But, in 30 years of doing transfers, you learn a lot about human beings", he said.

"He's a very professional player who has been committed until the last minute", Wenger said.

Now, he'll be earning a reported weekly wage of 400,000 pounds ($560,000) - possibly making him the highest-paid player in the Premier League - at what he perceives to be "the biggest club in the world". And I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.

"We did what we tried to do and went as far as we could (with money)".

The problem is when the going gets tough and Manchester becomes a hard place to play and live, will he go hiding again?

The Chile global arrives with many questions being asked of him, most notably where he fits in.

Since the start of the season, it looked like Manchester City would be Sanchez's next destination and that he would join them on a free transfer this summer.

He has played 119 times for Chile and helped his nation win back-to-back Copa America titles in 2015 and 2016, although they failed to qualify for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has hailed Jose Mourinho for building a strong defence at the club after they recorded their 14th clean sheet of the Premier League season at Burnley.
