With buzz around this player since the start of the transfer window, he has finally made his mind known to Arsenal that ‘he wants to join Manchester United’. Today, Henrikh Mkhitaryan advises Borussia Dortmund he wants to join Man Utd amidst interest from Arsenal FC.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan sent a text message to Borussia Dortmund to advise them that he wants to join Manchester United after the Red Devils presented an enhanced £33m offer to the club, reports from the Express claims.
Mkhitaryan’s future has been the centre of much hypothesis in the course of recent weeks after it was affirmed he had turned down the opportunity to sign a contract extension with Dortmund.
With only one year left on his present contract, Arsenal was in the race to get the players signature before United showed interest. At first, the player fell in love with a move to Arsenal but his agent as per reports, tld the media that ‘his client would love to go to Manchester United amidst interest from the Gunners’.
Dortmund who previously stated that they won’t be releasing the player to any club, might be making a U-turn after United tabled an enhanced offer for the Armenian International.
The Mirror reports that United’s most recent offer is worth £33m and Watzke went ahead to uncover that Dortmund will settle on an official choice about whether to trade out or constrain Mkhitaryan to see-out the last year of his contract this weekend.
Watzke is cited as saying by the Express:
“The situation is now different, Manchester have made a much improved offer.”
“In situations like this there are always a lot of different things to consider and in the end at one point we have to make a decision.
“And as we are back in training on Monday we will decide at the weekend.
“I have contacted the relevant people and we will weigh things up at the weekend. And then the board will make the decision, definitely at the weekend.”
A report from Bild claims the 27-year-old sent an instant message to coach, Thomas Tuchel letting him know he wants to join United.
The German outlet cited Mkhitaryan’s content as just saying:
“I go to Manchester United.”
Mkhitaryan scored 23 goals and gave an amazing 32 assist for Dortmund last season as they finished runners-up in Bundesliga.
It seems Mkhitaryan’s deal is as far as I am concerned, DONE. That will surely open the road for Draxler to come to Arsenal without any hitches again from Manchester United.
