Alexis Sanchez has liked a post on Instagram from an Arsenal fan saying goodbye.
The Chilean forward is close to securing a transfer to Manchester United , with Henrikh Mkhitaryan likely to go to the other way as part of the deal between the two clubs.
Arsene Wenger suggested on Thursday morning that the deal was ‘likely’ within 24 hours, but the wait for official confirmation goes on.
However, Sanchez hinted that the deal was done by liking a post from Arsenal Fan TV regular “Troopz”.
The image shows the two outside a hairdresser in Mill Hill in London, and the caption reads: “I loved this man like cook food but it’s time to say goodbye !!!”
Sanchez was not signed in time to face Burnley in the Premier League this weekend, but could make his debut next Friday when United travel to face Yeovil in the FA Cup.
Speaking about Sanchez at his pre-match press conference, Mourinho said: “I think clearly everybody knows that we are there, and especially when the Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did there is no point in trying to hide or deny.
“But it is not done at all, so in this moment Mkhitaryan is our player, Sanchez an Arsenal player and with a match tomorrow I want to switch off and to focus on the most important thing, which is the match.”
