Manchester United is playing Stoke City and the match stands at 1-0 15 mins in.
Mourinho was asked by SkySports if Mkhitaryan’s sidelining against Stoke City is due to an imminent transfer deal to Arsenal.
The United manager did not speak to any deal in the making, but stated Mkhitaryan’s sidelining is not a “100% tactical decision.”
Jose Mourinho confirmed he selected players whose “heads” are 100% in the match.
This message sends yet another signal that can be interpreted as a potential deal to transfer Mkhitaryan to Arsenal in exchange for Alexis Sanchez.
No affirmative decision has been made public, but Manchester United fans are hopeful the deal goes through.
