Arsenal had not intended to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, reports claim.

The Gunners legend reluctantly offloaded his Chilean talisman to the Red Devils for £29m in January.

So far, it appears Arsenal have got the better end of the deal. Mkhitaryan has fit in well under Unai Emery in a way Sanchez has never managed under Jose Mourinho.

Yet Bleacher Report  claim Wenger did not want Sanchez jumping ship to United.

At times he cut a petulant figure during the final months of his stint at the Emirates.

The 29 year-old has been linked with a return to the Emirates as he continues to struggle in Manchester.

However, after recently netting the winner in a 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle, the forward could finally be returning to form.
