Man United's Paul Pogba wants his wages doubled to match Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal 2-0 Crystal Palace

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained just why the club need Premier League star Alexis Sanchez amongst their ranks.

Sanchez arrived at Carrington after lunchtime on Sunday to undergo a medical.

The Chilean worldwide posted a video on his Instagram account at a private airfield where he was getting a flight from London to the north-west to complete the transfer.

City, funded by the Abu Dhabi United Group since their 2008 takeover, had easily the highest net transfer spend in the 2016 fiscal year at €199m, a UEFA report revealed this week.

Mourinho confirmed that both Ed Woodward, the club's executive vice-chairman, and Matt Judge, their head of corporate finance, were working on a Sanchez deal that will give the United manager another attacking option.

I didn't take him because there is a question of him moving to Manchester United and you can not drive up north and as well play football, said Wenger.

Alexis Sanchez's wages could create dressing-room disharmony at Manchester United, Steve McClaren claims.

"We know that when we can put him (Anthony Martial) in the 1 v 1 with a full back its hard for the full back because he has so many attributes".

"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".

"I really like to play down the left, through the middle but to tell you the truth, as long as I'm playing football, I'll fit in anywhere".

"I would like to wish Henrikh all the success and happiness that I am sure he is going to get".

"Have I spoken to the player yet? No".

Mourinho, speaking in his post-match conference following his side's narrow 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor, suggested that the Sanchez deal would come to fruition in the immediate future. With Sanchez in the team, United now suddenly boast one of the strongest attacks in Europe and will pose a big threat to other big teams.
