Mourinho comes clean over Man Utd talks for Arsenal forward Sanchez

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed the club are in talks to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger has said it is "likely" the Chile international will join their Premier League rivals.

United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to be included in any deal and has not been selected to face Burnley.

"There is no point in trying to hide or deny, but it is not done at all," said Mourinho.

"I think clearly everybody knows that we are there and especially when Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did."

Mourinho says he has not been involved in any of the negotiations for Sanchez and Mkhitaryan.

"I like to be out, I am out and I will just calmly wait for news, no more than that," he added.
