German outfit Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Manchester United.
The Armenian midfielder was in the form of his life last season with the impressive link up play with Marco Reus, Shinji Kagawa and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang upfront.
Jose Mourinho will be hoping Mkhitaryan can recreate that form in the next campaign, alongside fellow new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly.
Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke was clear that the player had to be moved on to stop him from leaving for free at the end of next season.
‘This transfer situation was a very difficult balancing act for us. Manchester made us a tremendous offer considering his contract situation,’ he told their official site.
‘Had we knocked it back, the player would have been able to move for free in 2017.’
Mkhitaryan scored 11 goals and 20 assists last season,
