Now here is a story for Manchester United fans to get really excited about.
The agent of the brilliant Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, has stated publicly that Manchester United want to sign his client and that the player wants to move in what he sees as a ‘unique opportunity”.
Agent Mino Raiola had stated that his player wanted to move after it emerged that Manchester United had made a bid for the player of around £19m:
“Manchester United is a unique opportunity, Micki wants to go there,”
The brilliant 27-year-old playmaker has just over 1 year remaining on his contract and his club released a statement yesterday which seemingly stated that a move was off the table this summer.
‘We have intensely discussed the question of an early transfer in all club bodies and came to the conclusion that Mkhitaryan will stay in Dortmund next season.’
But is this the end of it for Manchester United? We very much doubt it. Player power is greater than ever and the Armenian midfielder, who shares the same agent as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, seems very keen on a move. His agent added:
“Micki has for months maintained that he may leave the club this summer,”
“Dortmund presented an official offer which was rejected, but now the BVB bosses fear of their own fans. Suddenly they tell Micki, that he should go next season on a free transfer. This is very bad management
The powerful, clever and pacy attacking midfielder or winger has scored goals wherever he has played.
44 in 104 for Shaktar Donetsk and 40 in 136 for Dortmund. He also has a creditable scoring record for Armenia. Despite their status as a minnow on the global stage, he has hit 19 goals in 59 appearances for his country.
TFF thinks that he would be a perfect signing for Manchester Untied as a number 10 behind Zlatan or even as a winger. He’s a top quality player in his prime.
SO expect hear more about Manchester Untied and Henrik Mkhitaryan.
