World Class attacker to join Manchester United after club agrees a €40m deal

Borussia Dortmund have agreed to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester United for a reported €40million fee, according to latest reports from Metro.

The biggest push for the deal to go through has come from Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola, who is eager to see his client join the Old Trafford giants under any circumstance.

Despite the initial refusal to sell the player, Dortmund are now willing to let the 29-year old leave Signal Iduna Park this summer after demanding £30.8m (€40m) for his transfer.

The same has been confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio, who claimed that United are ready to meet Dortmund’s asking price after seeing their initial bid of €24.5million get turned down.

Mkhitaryan’s agent has even gone on record to claim that Manchester United is player’s dream club and he is really excited to be on the verge of playing for them next season.

In an exclusive interview with Bild, Raiola said“Such an offer to join Manchester United might only come once in a lifetime for a player and nobody can guarantee us that the door will still be open for Micki next season.

“Manchester are Micki’s dream club, he wants to join them by any means. My task is to represent my player’s interests. It’s known what Micki wants.”

These words sound like a man’s who knows what he is doing and how close is he from accomplishing his eventual goals. Like Raiola said it would be a dream transfer for both the parties given United’s need of signing a world class attacker.

New manager Jose Mourinho is aware of the difficult task of reviving United’s fortune after a rather pale 2015/16 season under Louis Van Gaal. The Red Devils could only manage 49 goals in 38 games last season.

That is where Mkhitaryan’s signing will be key as he alone was involved in 55 goals (23 goals, 32 assists) for Borussia Dortmund last season.

It does look like a great piece of business if United can pay the demanded €40m and bring the in-form Armenian International to Old Trafford ahead of next season.
