Manchester United fans on Twitter were delighted with Borussia Dortmund’s official confirmation of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s move to Old Trafford.
He enjoyed his best season at the Westfalenstadion last campaign scoring 21 goals and assisting another 20 in 50 appearances.
His impressive form has earned him a move to Old Trafford, even though Dortmund wanted him to see out the remaining year on his contract.
Here’s what Man United fans had to say on his transfer.
#Mkhitaryan is a bigger signing than Ibra for United. A bargain in today's market

Zlatan and Mkhitaryan joining so early in the transfer window shows that the players just know Mourinho's building something big! #MUFC

Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan. United getting their business done. Both top class acquisitions.

Jose Mourinho has signalled his intent to build a world-class side capable of winning titles and it’s brilliant to see him land his transfer target after a few weeks of negotiations.
I can’t wait to see our new players in action next season, it goes to show players want to play under Mourinho at Man United and become a part of his new team even though we can’t currently offer them Champions League football.
