Manchester United Football Club are keen on acquiring the services of Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer, with reports emerging over the last 24 hours. However, it doesn’t look like the Armenian is going to get his dream move.
That’s according to Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke, who says that the attacking midfielder will not be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, and he’ll be made to see out his contract.
“We have been negotiating a new deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan for four months.” Watzke is quoted as saying.
“We now know he won’t sign an extension. There was never a promise that he can leave us prematurely.”
This is a real shame, but hopefully, it is just gossip in order to get more money for Mkhitaryan. At the end of the day, the ball is firmly in his court, and if he wants a move bad enough, he’ll be able to force his way out.
You can understand why Dortmund aren’t keen on the idea. Particularly when you factor in that they’ve already lost both Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan during this transfer window, and we’re only in July.
