Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s agent has underlined the player’s wish to sign for Manchester United – and insists talks are ongoing to secure his transfer from Borussia Dortmund.
Attacking midfielder Mkhitaryan has only a year remaining on his deal with Dortmund and United are reported to have offered £25million for the Armenia international, with his agent admitting earlier in the week that the player wishes to move.
But despite failing to persuade Mkhitaryan to extend his commitment, Dortmund claim they will make him see out his contract with the Bundesliga runners up.
However, his agent Mino Raiola insists talks are ongoing to secure his release from the Westfalenstadion – and says Manchester United are “the only club” the Armenian player wishes to sign for this summer.
“He wants to go to Manchester United and we are still trying to resolve the situation,” Raiola said.
“We are still talking to Dortmund and working hard on this. We are trying to be reasonable. They are aware that Micki wants to leave now.”
Raiola earlier accused Dortmund of “very bad management” and underlined the 27-year-old’s wish to move to Old Trafford.
“Micki has for months maintained that he may leave the club this summer,” said Raiola.
“Dortmund presented an official offer which was rejected, but now the club bosses fear 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.”
