Borussia Dortmund confirm Mkhitaryan move

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will move to Manchester United according to a statement on the Bundesliga clubs website.

The deal is thought to be worth around £33million (€40million) including add-ons, with Mkhitaryan becoming the first Armenian to ever play for Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan (27) will separate ways this summer.

Following an intensive round of discussions, Borussia Dormind accepted the Armenian Internationals wish to join Manchester United next season.

Borussia Dortmund would like to wish Henrikh Mkhitaryan all the best for the upcoming season in the Premier League and UEFA Europa League.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said:

Based on a completely new situation, this transfer was a difficult trade-off for us. Manchester made us a very attractive offer. Had we refused it, the player would have left us on a free transfer in 2017 and we would only have delayed the matter of a replacement for a year.

The transfer of Mkhitaryan, which is subject to a medical and a work permit, will be Manchester United’s third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
