Alexis Sanchez has arrived at Carrington to undergo his Manchester United medical, according to The Mirror.
The 29-year-old looks set to become a Red Devil in plenty of time to play against Yeovil Town on Friday night, and what an exciting time for Manchester United fans.

The Mirror says that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be heading the other way in a straight swap deal, which is a move that makes perfect sense for all parties involved.
For Sanchez, it’s an opportunity to play at a higher level and do his utmost to win trophies such as the Premier League and Champions League, and I seriously cannot wait for him to get started.
Today could well be the day that we hear something official from either club regarding the deal, and hopefully, his medical checks all go fine and he’s holding up that Manchester United jersey in the not too distant future.
For now though, at least he’s up North as this transfer deal continues to progress towards its conclusion. I still can’t believe it, we’re signing Alexis Sanchez!
