  • Arsenal 2-0 Crystal Palace

At 6pm, Sanchez was finally unveiled as a Manchester United player in a sensational swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who went to Arsenal.

The Arsenal talisman will likely compete his Old Trafford move today, with the Chile global set to earn a staggering £500,000-a-week under Jose Mourinho.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ may have been on the brink of completing a sensational move to Manchester United - but that news still wasn't enough to raise a smile from Jose Mourinho.

"I'm very happy that we could finish this deal and I'm very happy to be here", Mkhitaryan told Arsenal's official website following Monday's confirmation of the blockbuster switch.

The departing Mkhitaryan struggled to pin down a permanent place under Mourinho at Old Trafford and will hope a move to Arsenal will revitalise his reputation, forged while playing for Borussia Dortmund.

"I think him and Marcus [Rashford] have both played on that left side and both have chipped in with goals and assists, and it's great for us that we have such great attacking flair".

Alexis Sanchez is now the most expensive player in the Premier League, earning, what is thought to be, around 500,000 euros per week.

Mkhitaryan was substituted at halftime of his first league start for United, setting the tone for what has turned out to be a disappointing spell after arriving in English soccer for $33.5 million and with a big reputation in 2016.

"So first it makes sense on a negotiations point of view and secondly we're replacing a very good player with a very good player, a world-class player with a world-class player".

Mourinho is selling Henrikh Mkhitaryan after deciding the playmaker can not handle the pressure of playing for United.

With injuries affecting Mkhitaryan in his early months at United, Mourinho said the player needed time to adjust to the physicality and intensity of the Premier League.

He did score when United won last year's Europa League final and will aim to help Arsenal progress from the last 32 in that competition.

United are yet to concede a goal in 2018 and have gone 504 minutes since their defence was last breached, when Burnley midfielder Steven Defour's free-kick beat David de Gea on Boxing Day.

I must send a personal thank you message to Arsene Wenger.

Smalling and United are next in action on Friday night at Yeovil Town in the FA Cup fourth round.
