Man United to rival Arsenal in race to sign star playmaker, claims insider
Manchester United are reportedly ready to rival Arsenal in the race to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund this summer
Manchester United are ready to rival Arsenal in the race to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports.
The Red Devils wrapped up their first signing of the summer transfer window on Wednesday as they confirmed the capture of defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal on a four-year contract.
United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of attacking reinforcements as Jose Mourinho prepares for his first full season in charge at Old Trafford.
Dortmund playmaker has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and Arsenal are said to be leading the race for his signature this summer.
However, German football expert Jan Aage Fjortoft has taken to social media to claim that United are hopeful of convincing Mkhitaryan to move to Old Trafford, stating that the player has the same agent as Red Devils transfer target Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
