Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United could sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out of action once more for Manchester United, manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

While Manchester United continue to be linked with January moves for both Alexis Sanchez and Lucas Moura, there could also be an outgoing or two from Old Trafford, this month.

Manchester City had been regarded as the favourites to sign the 29-year-old forward this month, but senior figures at the Etihad told ESPN FC on Friday that the Premier League leaders would not pursue a move for the Chilean unless Arsenal substantially dropped their £35m asking price for a player with less than six months remaining on his contract. "It doesn't matter who he is". It doesn't matter the prestige, the status.

Mourinho was desperate to get away from the cold of Manchester and he and his squad were free to do so after Coventry's shock victory over Stoke on Saturday ensured the Potters would not be involved in a replay next week. I think every player has a price.

"I'm not the kind of blind manager, blind in the sense of this player is untouchable, this player we can never sell, I think every player has a price".

With the January transfer window open, the Reds boss is being asked about possible signings every week by the media, while fans always eagerly await any news during this period and in the summer months.

"It's up to us to decide what we think is the right price".

'But Mkhitaryan played the last match in the FA Cup against Derby.

If United do land the signing of Alexis Sanchez, it is unknown if he would be a replacement for the missed signing of Perisic from last summer, or whether he then makes next summer's transfer activity that little bit easier.

Also, while mentioning the United's training schedule in Dubai, Mourinho concluded, "It was very good". 5, Mourinho has harboured long-term doubts over Mkhitaryan's ability to influence big games and the United manager had been prepared to use the Armenian to tempt Arsenal last summer. So tomorrow training, then Sunday selected and Monday play'.
