Jose Mourinho is hopeful Alexis Sanchez is set to become a Manchester United player but insists the deal is “not done.”
Mourinho revealed Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who trained at Carrington on Friday, will not feature against Burnley on Saturday as speculation persists that the midfielder will move to the Emirates.
He told a news conference on Friday ahead of the trip to Turf Moor: “There is nothing new.
“I think clearly everybody knows that we are there and especially when Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did there is no point in trying to hide or deny but not done at all, so in this moment Mkhitaryan our player, Sanchez an Arsenal player and with a match tomorrow I want to switch off and focus on the most important thing, which is the match.”
Mkhitaryan is expected to head to Arsenal to replace Sanchez and will not play against Burnley while negotiations continue.
Mourinho added: “He is not selected. But in very good condition, training really well and in good condition like the others.”
