Alexis Sanchez has not been included in Arsenal’s squad for Sunday’s Premier League match at Bournemouth as he edges closer to completing his transfer to Manchester United.
According to reports, Manchester United are favourites to sign the Chile forward before the end of the month, as they are willing to offer Sanchez a larger contract – worth around £400,000-per-week – than Manchester City.
Sanchez was involved in training on Saturday, and it is understood he is fully fit; his absence is down to the fact he is close to leaving the Gunners.
Manchester United are willing to offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan in exchange for Sanchez, though reports in France suggest Arsenal are close to sign Malcom, the Bordeaux winger, as the Chilean’s replacement.
