Henrikh Mkhitaryan is seeking showdown talks with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho after being frozen out at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Armenia international wants to know Mourinho’s long-term plans for the 28-year-old after his dramatic fall down the pecking order at the Premier League club.

The same report says that Mkhitaryan wants to speak directly with Mourinho about his future to determine whether he has a long-term future at the club or not.

Mkhitaryan has not started a game for Manchester United since the 1-0 loss to Chelsea in early November, and he was once again not involved during Sunday’s Manchester derby defeat by Manchester City.

Indeed, his last appearance for Manchester United game as a substitute during the win over Brighton on 25 November.

His fall down the pecking order at Manchester United has inevitably led to speculation that he could be set to leave the club in search of regular first-team football.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the Armenia international, who signed for the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2016.

He will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a home clash against Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
