Mkhitaryan holds key in United's deal for Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez has been offered the No 7 shirt at Manchester United if he joins

Alongside Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard in a forward three, the 29-year-old would form part of one of the deadliest attacking trios in world football at Stamford Bridge but many fear Chelsea have left it too late.

"Manchester United are not going to sign Sánchez unless Mkhi agrees to join Arsenal", Mkhitaryan's agent Mino Raiola told the Times.

It's looked for the past week like Manchester United were going to sign the Arsenal star, who had already become embroiled in a long-running "will he, won't he" scenario with Manchester City.

Earlier speaking to the BBC, the United manager said: "He is an Arsenal player, if he stays it's great for Arsenal, if he comes to us, great for us, if he goes to another club, great for them".

Antonio Conte's side are struggling this season and with the added firepower of Alexis Sanchez in their frontline, their battle for trophies would be massively boosted. Not the other way around.

Arsenal were interested in Mkhitaryan in the summer of 2016 but he made a decision to join United instead, but it would appear that getting $48 million and Mkhitaryan for Sanchez, a player who has less than six months to run on his current contract, is a good deal for the Gunners.

It is expected to be a bumper deal especially for a player whose contract runs out in the summer, along with money it is believed that the Armenian will be used as leverage allowing him to opt out of his stuttering United career. He has no problem with the manager.

"He doesn't have to leave".

"Just relaxed with the feeling he is an Arsenal player, that he can stay there but also with the feeling that he can move". In your opinion, should Arsenal agree a deal worth £300,000-a-week to lure Mkhitaryan? My players know very well they can improve, also because if you compare to the past - every single player scored less than last season.

The 28-year-old has started only two games in the Red Devils' past 16 matches, and has been left out of the matchday squads on many occasions this season.

And joining United comes off the back of nearly a year of incessant speculation linking Sanchez with a move to their local rivals City.

Conte suggested he does not have the final say over transfers at Stamford Bridge and refused to comment further on Sanchez.
