Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has finally confirmed that there is indeed a marquee transfer deal in the works.
Saturday will see United attempt keep up their pursuit of Manchester City in the title race as they visit Burnley.
But ahead of that fixture, much of the talk has rather been about the pursuit of Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.
All sorts of reports are indicating that United are wrapping up a deal worth $622,000-a-week in wages to sign the 29-year-old.
And when asked about the status if the transfer, Mourinho finally admitted that United are indeed in talks to complete a move for Sanchez.
“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.”
