Will Mkhitaryan be a success in the Prem?Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Manchester United.
The 27-year-old was in brilliant form as Thomas Tuchel’s side finished second in the Bundesliga last season, managing 11 goals and 20 assists.
Jose Mourinho will be hoping the Armenia international can recreate that form in the next campaign, alongside fellow new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly.
Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke was clear that the player had to be moved on to stop him from leaving for free at the end of next season.
‘This transfer situation was a very difficult balancing act for us. Manchester made us a tremendous offer considering his contract situation,’ he told their official site.
‘Had we knocked it back, the player would have been able to move for free in 2017.’
