Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is likely to join rivals Manchester United this month, his manager Arsene Wenger said ahead of Premier League match against Crystal Palace. The Chilean international is out of contract at the end of the season and was also a target for Manchester City, but United appear to have stolen a march on their local rivals.
"I worked on transfers for 30 years so it is likely to happen, but at any moment it can break down ... If it doesn't happen, he will play on Saturday." Wenger told a news conference, adding that United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan could move in the other direction.
"I like the player. We played many times against him when he was at (Borussia) Dortmund. He appreciated the quality of our games ... The wages would not be a problem," Wenger added.
"This would be an exchange of players and I think one would replace the other," Wenger said, adding that he would still be in the market for more recruits. Arsenal sold England international Theo Walcott to Premier League rivals Everton on Wednesday. British media reports say that United are prepared to pay the striker more than 350,000 pounds ($485,000) per week.
