Match of the Day host Gary Lineker delivers big Alexis Sanchez to Man Utd update on show
The Match of the Day host delivered the transfer update on Saturday night's show after highlights of Arsenal's 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Lineker said: "We understand it's not quite over the line but it's getting pretty close.
"It's expected to be announced Monday if all goes swimmingly well for both sides."
Arsene Wenger had earlier revealed how Manchester United will only sign Arsenal forward Sanchez if Henrikh Mkhitaryan moves the other way.
United boss Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, said they were "doing absolutely everything they can" to finalise the deal.
