Manchester United on alert as Henrikh Mkhitaryan may not renew Borussia Dortmund contract – report

Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan may not renew his contract with the German club and Manchester United are among those interested in signing him, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Mkhitaryan scored 11 goals and registered 15 assists for Dortmund during an impressive 2015/16 season in which his side finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal.

Dortmund are reluctant to sell Mkhitaryan, whose contract expires in 2017, after Mats Hummels joined Bayern Munich last month but a number of top European clubs have registered their interest in him.

Juventus and Arsenal have reportedly offered the forward a firm deal, while Man United and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be monitoring the situation.

Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for offensive reinforcements this summer, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also linked with moves to the club.

United’s lack of goals was a huge negative during the 2015/16 season under van Gaal and it is clear that the team need to improve their options for the upcoming campaign. Marcus Rashford performed brilliantly up top during the final few months of the season but a club of United’s resources shouldn’t be relying on him and him alone.
