Manchester United Football Club have already announced that Jose Mourinho is their new manager, with the self-proclaimed Special One already hard at work. One man thought to be on his wishlist is Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder.
That’s according to the extremely reliable Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio. His stock in terms of sources certainly rose considerably as he covered Manchester United’s move for Mourinho excellently this summer, and has a proven track record where transfers are concerned.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a wonderful footballer. Now 27, the Armenian is loving life at the Westfalonstadion and has really proven himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in the game.
Since his move to Germany in 2013, Mkhitaryan has been a mainstay in the Borussia Dortmund team, and has created countless chances for him teammates, whilst chipping in with a few goals.
Perhaps the most important factor in his style of play is that he will work hard for the cause whereas Juan Mata won’t. He loves to track back and get stuck in, and that has to be his biggest selling point to Jose Mourinho.
