Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United was thought to have been held up by Henrikh Mkhitaryan's move in the opposite direction to Arsenal.

Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez has arrived arrived at Carrington to undergo his medical ahead of his move to Manchester United.

Sky Sports News understands it will be a straight swap deal between United and Arsenal but as of Sunday morning, the paperwork on every aspect of deal has yet to be signed off.

City also have Europe's highest value of players in their balance sheet at €362 million, UEFA said, but United are set to make Sanchez the highest-paid player in the Premier League should the deal go through.

Sanchez's move is not expected to be officially announced until Monday, with the complications that have delayed the deal for almost a week were down to the complications of the swap, as well as Mkhitaryan's demands.

Sanchez was due to be in the Arsenal squad after Arsene Wenger named 19 players but then got pulled out and said his goodbyes to his team mates after a breakthrough in negotiations.

Alexis Sanchez will most likely presented to the media as a Manchester United player on Tuesday, according to Guillem Balague. "Two trophies last season, progression on the field, we are getting better and stronger, I don't see any reason why not (give him an extension)?"

"I expect soon or never", he said after United's 1-0 win at Burnley.

Wenger also admitted Mkhitaryan must agree to join Arsenal before he will sanction Sanchez's exit.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is scheduled to come the other way in a swap deal, having fallen out of favour at Old Trafford this season. "I must say he's a player who has all the attributes".

When asked if he had indeed travelled north, Wenger said "Let me think, yes".

"There are people (former club players) who have spoken with no knowledge of what happens inside the club and cause damage", Sanchez wrote.

Now Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is ready to tell United that his current £200,000-aweek salary is no longer the going rate for a player of his stature.
