Throughout the previous couple of weeks, reports have suggested that Arsenal were moving near singing Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The player, who is declining to sign another arrangement with the German club, has been told by the club he’s going no where, however that hasn’t halted his agent letting us know his plans of forcing a move for his Client, but the destinations is no longer Arsenal.
Mino Raiola said “He wants to go to Manchester United and we are still trying to resolve the situation.”
Mino is also the agent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who is also strongly linked to Manchester United. Jose Mourinho ia known for his spending spree at a club his manages and it will be no surprise if we see big money transfers this summer at Manchester United.
He won’t get a fee for Zlatan, but Raiola will no doubt receive a hefty chunk of the whopping signing on fee United would pay the Swede. He’s also already generated over €130m in transfer fees throughout Ibra’s career so far.
He took Mkhitaryan on as a customer in 2013 however has yet to expedite any significant arrangements to or from the Bundesliga.
All things considered, Arsenal would be more than willing to coordinate United on the exchange charge for Mkhitaryan. Compensation, in any case, would be another matter totally.
From what I can see, United work with no pay structure while Arsenal has its own in place.United, with the wave of a pen, would cheerfully pay the midfielder a weekly amount far in excessof the most noteworthy player at Arsenal.
With Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte all hoping to enroll vigorously amid this window, this non-exchange could well be little taster of what Arsenal have in store for them as they attempt to contend with these clubs who will pay progressively and now have supervisors that offer as much draw as Wenger himself.
It will be an intense season to look out for.
