Arsenal and Manchester United seem to have reached an agreement over a sensational swap of superstars.

Reports from the weekend revealed that the Red Devils had successfully hijacked their noisy neighbours’ pursuit of Alexis Sanchez, and had thereby become the frontrunners in the race for his signature.

But while the Arsenal talisman’s arrival at Old Trafford looked imminent, Jose Mourinho and co were hit with a new roadblock, involving their out-of-form playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Sky Sports broadcaster Jim White claimed earlier on Tuesday that Mkhitaryan held the key to Sanchez’s switch to the Theatre of Dreams, but the Armenian international was far from interested in joining the Gunners.



However, it has now come to light that this swap deal might indeed be on, with both midfielders set to head into the opposite directions in the January window itself.
