Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to undergo a medical at Premier League rivals Arsenal in the next 48 hours, allowing Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez to seal his move in the other direction, British media reported on Saturday (Jan 20). To buy a striker who can only play there: that is not going to happen.

"We know that when we can put him [Martial] in the one-on-one situation with the full-back [Phil Bardsley], it's hard for the full-back because he has so many attributes - he can go inside, he can go outside, he can shoot to the far post and he can shoot like he did today to the front post".

Manchester City only want to sign "nice" players that will not disrupt the dressing room.

"He [Sterling] can play there".

Wenger says the deal could become finalised before Arsenal's clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday (AEDT) but admits there are still factors to be agreed.

It's a huge move and one that will vastly improve Mourinho's squad.

"In this moment there is no competition for places, we have four attacking players for three positions, three are starting, one is on the bench", he said.

However, the Portuguese coach has confirmed that the Red Devils will aim to try and bring in a total of three new players across both transfer windows in 2018.

"The others will be looking at renegotiation next season or the season after and getting to that (wage) level if they think they are at that level". The stability of the club is the most important thing. That's why we did it. I think it's so close, so close - so close that if it doesn't happen (soon) it's not going to happen.

"It's true when Manchester City and Abu Dhabi took over the team, in that period they spent a lot. He can be serious but he has a playful side too where you can have fun with him". "United are very well managed financially and on the pitch so that's why I don't have any problems with the money they pay".

He said: 'The fact is we're still in a relegation battle, we're not alone now, we're a little bit less isolated than we were some weeks and months ago and we're happy, of course, about that.
