Manchester United fans have been watching Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s glowing array of highlights from his time at Borussia Dortmund ahead of his move to Old Trafford.
Botch clubs agreed a fee of €42.5m and the Armenian midfielder will undergo a medical this week before an official announcement is made.
He scored 23 goals and registered 32 assists across all competitions last season, proving he was an extremely vital asset the Westfalenstadion.

Man United lacked creativity upfront last season and earned themselves a reputation of playing boring football, but there’s no doubt Mkhitaryan’s arrival at Old Trafford will help raise entertainment levels.
He’s the perfect match for the role at United, with Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata often deployed as a right-winger, it’s great to have the addition of a world-class player maker that will be able to play in his natural position.
Mkhitaryan has often been praised for his versatility and will open up a large pool of options for Mourinho next season. There’s no doubt he’ll be a deadly asset for the Portuguese boss and I can’t wait to see him in action at Old Trafford.
