Manchester United Jose Mourinho has confirmed the club are in talks to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and that he is “calmly waiting for news”.
Arsenal boss 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.”
Sanchez, 29, is out of contract in June and is thought to have agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club.
