Arsenal announce that they have signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United, with Alexis Sanchez sealing a switch to Old Trafford.

The swap deal sees Armenia worldwide winger Mkhitaryan, also 29, head to the Emirates following a mixed 18 months at Old Trafford had been expected for several days.

The Chile worldwide left Arsenal for the 20-time English champions Monday, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract with the Red Devils believed to be worth £450,000 a week. Mkhitaryan joins after an up and down 18-month spell with the Red Devils which saw him play an instrumental role in the club's Europa League win but also fall drastically out of favour under Jose Mourinho this term.

"I'm very happy that we could finish this deal and I'm very happy to be here. Now that I'm here, I'll do my best for this club to create history", said Mkhitaryan, 29. One example came in a Champions League last-16 match at Bayern Munich, when he was seen crouching near the touchline - a long way from any other Arsenal player - looking utterly fed up as the German side scored its last goal in a 5-1 win.

"The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down".

Aubameyang is believed to be on the verge of a big-money move to Arsenal as Alexis Sanchez's direct replacement.

Wenger said: "I believe we lose a world-class player and gain a world-class player".

"Sanchez is a great guy and he has always been committed", said Wenger.

Sanchez's departure had been on the cards for some time when it became apparent he would not sign a new contract at the club. The transfer saga surrounding the two players which had been now running for months finally came to end as they swapped shirts and headed in opposite directions.

Mkhitaryan was substituted at halftime of his first league start for United, setting the tone for what has turned out to be a disappointing spell after arriving in English soccer for $33.5 million and with a big reputation in 2016.

Meanwhile Mkhitaryan, who joined United from Borussia Dortmund a season and a half ago, will join up with another former United forward in Danny Welbeck at the Emirates.

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.

The Armenia global helped United to the EFL Cup and Europa League titles in his first season at the club, but struggled for regular game time this term, making 22 appearances in all competitions.
