Alexis Sanchez has undergone a medical at Manchester United as his potential swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan edges closer, according to Sky sources.

Transfer Talk: Will Sanchez succeed at Utd?
The Transfer Talk panel discuss whether Alexis Sanchez will prosper at Old Trafford.
Sky sources understand it will be a straight swap deal between United and Arsenal, although the final paperwork on the transfer is yet to be signed off by all parties involved.
Both Sanchez and Mkhitaryan were absent on Saturday as Arsenal and Manchester United returned to Premier League action.
Arsenal and United are expected to make a simultaneous announcement on Monday confirming the swap deal has been completed, once both players have passed their respective medicals.
