Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, has confirmed that the forward wants to leave Borussia Dortmund to join Manchester United this summer.
Mkhitaryan’s contract expires in June 2017 and Man United are interested in the Armenian but Dortmund have blocked his exit having already lost Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan to Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
Raiola previously criticised Dortmund for their stance and it appears that he is now looking for ways to force the issue.
“He wants to go to Manchester United and we are still trying to resolve the situation,” Raiola told The Times.
Mkhitaryan enjoyed a fine 2015/16 campaign for Dortmund, scoring 23 goals and registering 32 assists in all competitions.
He would be an excellent addition to the squad but Dortmund are well within their rights to expect Mkhitaryan to see out the contract that he originally signed.
That being said, you would think that the German club would not want to keep an unhappy player and it will be interesting to see if the situation develops any further. United have already signed defender Eric Bailly, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Breel Embolo are also said to be on Jose Mourinho’s radar.
