Sanchez's move to Man U was for money, Wenger declares

  • Shaw has enjoyed a resurgence in recent weeks- earlier this season it looked like his United career might be over

Sanchez is expected to complete his move to Old Trafford from Arsenal on Monday, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving in the opposite direction.

The 29-year-old forward had been tipped to swap Arsenal for City in a reunion with former Barcelona boss Guardiola, however, United hijacked their neighbour's move, with some past players and pundits claiming Sanchez's decision is based on money.

The Arsenal talisman will likely compete his Old Trafford move today, with the Chile worldwide set to earn a staggering £500,000-a-week under Jose Mourinho.

Despite not longer being part of Jose Mourinho's plans at Old Trafford, and quickly falling out of favour with the Portuguese manager, former Dortmund player Mkhitaryan actually started the season pretty well.

"Mkhitaryan can play on the wing or in midfield, so I believe he can play very well in many positions", said Wenger. There have been a lot of young players, he's managed them and they've done very well.

Evacuated students were bused to Stafford Elementary School where they were able to be picked up by parents, according to Joffre. Sheriff's official say a 15 year old girl was hurt and has been airlifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

A move to either of the Manchester clubs became a preferable option to signing a new contract.

"When a player of that ability comes along, I think you got to be in the market for him", Irwin, who played over 500 games for United during 12 trophy-laden seasons, told Reuters.

In an Instagram post, he took a parting shot at ex-Arsenal players who have criticised his attitude.

"Henrikh is a very complete player", said Wenger.

The Armenia worldwide scored 23 goals and set up 32 more in his last season at Dortmund but failed to reproduce anything close to those numbers at United.

NFL Finds Raiders Complied With Rooney Rule in Jon Gruden Hiring
Gruden has prior history with Oakland, serving as the head coach for four seasons and compiling a 38-26 record over the span. Former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, however, was apparently eager to get back to coaching for the 2018 season.

Mkhitaryan has been a marginal figure at United in recent months, with Jesse Lingard starting ahead of him behind Lukaku.

United are yet to concede a goal in 2018 and have gone 504 minutes since their defence was last breached, when Burnley midfielder Steven Defour's free-kick beat David de Gea on Boxing Day.

"I can not understand anybody wanting to leave Arsenal", Wenger said. He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

Mino Raiola, the famed agent who represents both players, helped orchestrate the blockbuster transaction.

Mkhitaryan is cup-tied in that competition, so could make his debut against Swansea next week.
