Manchester United are closing in rapidly on the signature of Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian winger is believed to be in Manchester already, with his plane jetting into the airport at around 15:30 BST, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The 27-year-old has just twelve months remaining on his current contract with Borussia Dortmund, which led to a flurry of reports linking him with a move away.
Finally after a couple of weeks pursuing Mkhitaryan, it looks as though an official announcement regarding his transfer isn’t too far away – providing personal terms are sorted easily enough.
What an astute bit of business from Jose Mourinho. Manchester United have been crying out for a right winger of real quality for quite some time now, and Mkhitaryan has a real end product that will certainly improve the team dramatically.
Hopefully the club can wrap the last few minor details up in a swift enough manner, and get working on other possible incomings.
