Why does Jose not like him? He started the season so well and then all of a sudden he was nowhere to be seen – it’s odd. And seems harsh.
The Armenian is speculated to be a key part of Alexis Sanchez’s move to Old Trafford – where he is now favourite to join before the transfer window shuts (1/8), despite reported interest now from Antonio Conte’s Chelsea.
Before the game, Sanchez was 1/4 to join United and 16/1 to join Man City, who were originally the favourites to secure the Chilean and have now got completely pissed off with the whole thing.
Mkhitaryan being left out of the squad last night seems to all but confirm that he’s on his way out. Still, at least Mourinho won’t have to attempt to spell his name on the team sheet any longer. Plus, he’s nicked Sanchez from Pep. I make that 1-0 to Jose.
