Mkhitaryan wants to 'create history' after 'dream' Arsenal move

Mkhitaryan wants to 'create history' after 'dream' Arsenal move

For the first time in Wenger's 22 years at the club, the previously all-powerful Frenchman has appeared powerless to shape events, reduced to responding with platitudes at every mention of Sanchez's impending move to Manchester.

Finally we end with a story in The Mail who report that Stoke City have launched a bid worth £3.25 million for New York City FC's forward Jack Harrison.

Chris Smalling has revealed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's simple instruction to his players in the second half at Burnley. That wasn't necessarily the case for United.

Mourinho lauded his new signing.

But in addition to Mkhitaryan's pending arrival, Campbell believes Arsene Wenger's squad needs more world-class additions to strengthen up their defensive side.

Sanchez's move still hinges on Mkhitaryan completing his medical and paperwork at Arsenal, with the Gunners set to pay the Armenian £200,000 ($347,000) a week to make him their highest earner. You need world-class players.

'Wage parity is very important to players. "I never had any doubts about that".

Mkhitaryan arrived at United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2016 and helped the club win the Europa League and the League Cup in his debut campaign.

He has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges. Nassar faces a sentence of 40 to 125 years when Judge Rosemarie Aquilina eventually rules on his punishment.

As the Gunners prepare to part with one creative influence, with a move to Manchester United edging ever closer, Arsene Wenger is being linked with several others.

"We always talk about Arsenal being so impressive middle-to-front, the options that they have the goals that they score".

That reference to the raw end of Glasgow where Ferguson grew up suggested Wenger had extracted the maximum possible from a hard situation in ensuring United paid the then hefty sum of £24 million (RM132 million) for the Dutch striker.

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

"I'm very excited to get a player in who will be committed and focused".

"I remember today, a conversation I had with Henry, a historic Arsenal player, who changed club for the same reason and today is my turn".

"We have tried to find the best possible solution and the best possible solution is that we lose a world class player - I don't deny that at all - but we did not lose him without getting somebody after".

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