Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer amid rumoured interest from a number of clubs including Manchester United, according to Bild.

The Armenian, who scored 20 goals and registered 21 assists in 50 appearances for club and country during the 2015/16 season, is out of contract at Dortmund in 2017 and talks over a new deal have stalled.

Dortmund are now set to cash in on Mkhitaryan, with Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal said to be keen on securing his signature.

According to Bild, Dortmund would accept a bid of around £23m for the player.

Mkhitaryan enjoyed a sensational campaign last time around and his stock has risen considerably across the football world.

United had problems on the right wing last season – Juan Mata played there but his lack of pace was glaring – and a move for Mkhitaryan would make sense, particularly as the fee would be relatively low.

His capture would strengthen a problem area and Mkhitaryan is also capable of playing elsewhere across the front three attacking positions. But a number of teams are likely to be in for his signature and United will have a battle on their hands to convince Mkhitaryan his future lies at Old Trafford.
