Mourinho refuses to rule out Mkhitaryan exit

Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out the departure of Henrikh Mkhitaryan after the Armenian has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Speculation has surrounded the future of former Borussia Dortmund midfielder in recent weeks after being dropped from the United side due to his recent poor form.



United have been linked with moves for Arsenal duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, with speculation suggesting Mkhitaryan could move in the opposite direction, and when asked about the midfielders situation, Mourinho refused to rule out an exit:

“My approach to players is that every player has a price, it doesn’t matter who he is, doesn’t matter his level or prestige, I think every player has a price.”



The Man Utd Manager did however suggest that he would not be allowed to leave on the cheap, and that he still considers him a part of his plans:

“I don’t see players as untouchable, when the window is open it’s also open for any club that is interested in our players, then it’s up to us on deciding what we think is the right price, but Mkhitaryan played the last match and will play the next one.

“He’s our player and a very good player.”

Mkhitaryan only moved to Old Trafford in 2016, and endured a difficult first season in the Premier League. He started his second season in fine form, racking up five assists in the first four games, but has failed to add to that tally in any of his subsequent appearances.
