The list of players who wishes to join the Manchester United camp is, honestly, not as long as the list they plan out. But it’s essential to showcase every saga that concerns the Old Trafford side with a big shot, Jose Mourinho taking charge right from next season. The latest voice echoes out from Borussia Dortmund star, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who himself wishes to play under Jose Mourinho. But he is facing a stern battle against Dortmund’s reluctant CEO,Hans-Joachim Watzke.
“We have been negotiating with Henrikh Mkhitaryan for four months for him to extend his contract with us,” Watzke told Bild.
27-year-old Mkhitaryan has one more year to see his contract expire at the Signal Iduna Park and the club officials vow to secure his presence despite tempting offers across Europe from top clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants to LEAVE Borussia Dortmund
“Now we know that it is not extended, it was never our commitment that Mkhitaryan may leave us prematurely. 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.”
Yet Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, who also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli isn’t glad about Dortmund’s blockade as he labels the United switch a ‘Unique Opportunity’. Also, he criticised Dortmund’s acts a ‘Bad management’.
“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.”
“Manchester United is a unique opportunity, Micki wants to go there,” he also added.
The Armenia international is in his prime years of his professional football career who can be a backbone to any top club’s attacking midfield. His versatility, vision, the variety of passing skills make him a complete midfield package. Borussia Dortmund has already dealt with the Mario Gotze, Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels situation very well, but they were on the losing side of the battle at the end. The fans of BVB fear Micki may also join the long list of players who left BVB at the wrong time.
