Arsenal are heavily linked with a move for Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhhitaryan and reports suggests that the Armenian playmaker could end up at the Emirates.
Yesterday, report broke out from multiple sources claiming that the the Red Devils midfielder, who is on £200,000-a-week deal with the Manchester giants is closing in on a move to the Emirates.
Super agent Mino Raiola has recently claimed via The Times that the former Borussia Dortmund star is key to Manchester United’s deal for Alexis Sanchez.
On the other hand, the Daily Record have revealed that the player wants to become Arsenal’s highest earner if he is to complete the move to the club.
Duncan Castle states that Raiola wants him to get the same level of wages that Arsenal were prepared to offer to Sanchez to renew his contract.
After researching some reports in the media from last year, our report found that the biggest contract Arsenal reportedly offered Alexis was worth £300,000-a-week (via Daily Mail). Taking this into consideration, a contract worth £300,000-a-week could get Mkhitaryan signing done for Arsenal.
Arsenal lost their last Premier League game against AFC Bournemouth and next in line, the Gunners will collide against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
As far as Mkhitaryan is concerned, he has been out of form this season and surely does not deserve a pay rise. At the moment, Arsenal’s highest earner is their record signing Alexandre Lacazette, who gets £200,000-a-week via the Daily Star.
It remains to be seen how the transfer saga will unfold before the month runs out. But from your hindsight, should Arsenal agree a deal worth £300,000-a-week to lure Mkhitaryan?
