The transfer Manchester United fans have been waiting patiently for last 10 days or so has been finally completed after Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed his €42million move to Old Trafford.
The 27-year old becomes the first ever Armenian player to play for Man United and will be one of the most vital members of Jose Mourinho’s squad next season.

Mkhitaryan becomes the third summer signing for United following Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Former Dortmund playmaker will be asked to be United’s creator-in-chief after a rather pale last season from the Red Devils.
Mkhitaryan can operate from right wing as well as play in the number 10 role, however, seeing how United have the likes of Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney in their ranks, Mkhitaryan will most likely start in the wide right role.
Mkhitaryan was also linked with a move to Arsenal this summer but according to the player’s agent he always wanted to join United as it has always been his dream club.
We are yet to see how he fits in the Premier League, but it promises to be an exciting summer at Old Trafford with him and Ibrahimovic signing for the club on the same day.
