Sanchez has been embroiled in a transfer tug of war between Manchester City and Manchester United. Though despite City's initial interest, United are set to hijack the deal.

While meeting Arsenal's and Sanchez's financial demands, United are also set to throw in Henrik Mkhitaryan as part of the deal.

However, the imminent transfer is taking some time to be completed.

And United need to finalise the deal by NOON today (Friday) if they want Sanchez to make his debut on Saturday, according to Mirror.

Jose Mourinho's side are fresh off a victory against Stoke City in the league, cutting the gap at the top to 12 points following City's defeat at Anfield.

But, if the club fail to complete Sanchez's transfer in time, he could make his United bow at Huish Park.

United face Yeovil Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup a week today.

Meanwhile, with the transfer of Sanchez nearing a done deal, all eyes will be on what squad number he dons at Old Trafford.

And it appears he's set to sport a HUGE number - No.7.

While stores in London have even begun selling his shirt to the public.

An Adidas Store in Oxford Street have already printed out their first 'Alexis 7' Manchester United shirt.

Twitter user @BossAmerM was pictured with an 'Alexis 7' shirt in the Adidas store.

Manchester United will reportedly hand Sanchez the number seven shirt, with the Chilean set to become the highest paid Premier League player.
