Mourinho confident Sanchez will sign


London (AFP) – Jose Mourinho believes Chilean star Alexis Sanchez will sign for Manchester United he said on Saturday.

Sanchez is set to move to United in a blockbuster deal that will reportedly make him the Premier League’s highest paid player.

United will reportedly pay £35 million (39.6 million euros, $48.5 million) for Sanchez, a £20 million transfer fee to Arsenal and £15 million to the player’s agent Fernando Felicevich. 

United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is said to have agreed to join Arsenal as part of the deal.

Mourinho speaking after United had won 1-0 at Burnley said he expected the 29-year-old two-time Copa America winner to complete the move.

“If you ask me if I think he is coming, I think so, but I have no confirmation,” the Portuguese told the BBC.

Sanchez will earn £350,000 a week plus an extra £100,000 a week for image rights over the course of a four-and-a-half-year contract. 

He will also receive £7.5 million a year for four years as a signing-on fee.
