Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says it is "likely" forward Alexis Sanchez will join Premier League rivals Manchester United in a deal that will see Red Devils' Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction.

The 29-year old Chilean is out of contract in June and is thought to have agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club.

"I worked on transfers for 30 years so it is likely to happen, but at any moment it can break down." Wenger said on BBC Sports

Wenger also said it was a "possibility" United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be a part of the deal.

"I like the player. We played many times against him when he was at Dortmund. He appreciated the quality of our games. The wages would not be a problem." the French boss added

Armenia international Mkhitaryan, 28, has not agreed terms on a move but was left out of the league win over Stoke on Monday, with manager Jose Mourinho confirming the decision was not tactical.
