Manchester United star most likely to seal transfer back to his former club

Posted by

Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan looks most likely heading out of Old Trafford and seal a transfer back to his old side Borussia Dortmund.

The Armenia international is currently out of the first-team picture at United, and the Independent claim they’re prepared to let him go for the right price.

Mkhitaryan may not have done the business here in England, but he was previously one of the best attackers in Europe when on top form at former club Dortmund.

The Independent claim this has led to them showing the strongest interest in him so far, with the Daily Mirror suggesting United would ideally like to replace him with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil.

It is not entirely clear if the Germany international would be a significant upgrade on Mkhitaryan, but that seems the most likely change at the moment.

Jose Mourinho was slow to show his trust to Mkhitaryan last season, but has worked with Ozil before at Real Madrid and always been full of praise for his qualities.

Dortmund previously sold Shinji Kagawa to United before bringing him back, with the club clearly proving hard for its star players to leave.
