Jose Mourinho signs extension with Manchester United

The Premier League leaders did not want to pay a fee of more than £20m while United were not only willing to meet Arsenal's £35m asking price, but offer much higher wages.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has insisted that the biggest players in the world would still prefer to move to Old Trafford rather than join Manchester City.

"It is good he has left", Petrosyan, 46, said. "I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years", said Mourinho.

There were fears that the Chilean international's departure could impact Arsenal's players in their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea on Wednesday night but Arsene Wenger's men beat their London rivals 2-1 at the Emirates to set up a final with Manchester city at Wembley on February 25.

Earlier this month Mourinho dismissed reports he may walk out on United this coming close season as "garbage".

"I didn't even hear anything".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been tipped to play a key role in 2017/18, beginning tonight in Macedonia. I know him for many many years, I was with him in Italy at Udinese, in Spain, when he was at Barcelona, in England, when he was at Arsenal, so our careers are nearly made in the same countries simultaneously, so I know him very very well.

"Could he have performed better?" I know him very well for many years. "Maybe. But I don't have regrets". Mourinho bemoaned a lack of creativity during his first matches in charge when it was obvious the responsibility fell on his playmaker.

But plenty of other observers had no qualms over a move which appears to offer Sanchez a better chance of winning major honours, with Manchester United great and new Wales manager Ryan Giggs saying the forward was a "ready-made superstar".

"It's a very big club", the 38-year-old said. His scorpion kick against Sunderland was also one of the goals of last season.

It wouldn't be the first time that Elneny has teased Sanchez, either.

Petrosyan says his star would confide in him during this hard period.

"Time will tell us who was right with the swap".
