Manchester United confident of signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal

In fact, recent reports have indicated that Alexis' agent, Fernando Felicevich, has already agreed to terms with the club and so has Sanchez, so it seems we are only waiting for the official confirmation and the physical exams to say this is a done deal.

Thomas Lemar was initially Wenger's favourite but Arsenal failed to land him with a £90m bid last August, when Sanchez was on the verge of joining City for £50m.

There was also a feeling within Old Trafford that Arsenal, and manager Arsene Wenger, would not sanction a sale to United and Mourinho due to the embarrassment caused by Robin van Persie's success in a United shirt following his move there in 2012 and, perhaps more significantly, the long-running tension between Mourinho and Wenger.

Asked if Sanchez's exit is imminent, Wenger said: 'Yes, don't read too much in it because even I don't know which way it will go. News emanating this week has suggested that the 29-year-old Chilean could the subject of a player plus cash deal by the 20-time and according to a Turkish publication, Ibrahimovic could be ready to leave Old Trafford should the former Barcelona man arrive at Old Trafford. Hours back Liverpool were seen as one of the potential buyers but now once again it has all come down to the two Manchester giants.

"They are top of the league, they are going to win the league this season, they are in the Champions League, they are looking like they will be in the final for the League cup, the FA Cup as well potentially. You want to focus on the players who are on the pitch who can do well for the club". Incidentally he's won trophies with us.

The Chilean's contract is up in the summer and Arsenal are keen to recoup some money for him rather than letting him go for free at the end of the season.
