Man Utd agree £26.3m transfer fee for Mkhitaryan – Sky sources

Manchester United are close to completing the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund after the clubs agreed a £26.3m fee, according to Sky sources.

The 27-year-old Armenia midfielder has agreed personal terms with United after talks with his representative and will undergo a medical within the next week.

Mkhitaryan has been regularly linked with United and new boss Jose Mourinho appears set to land his man.

He has a year left on his Dortmund deal but is set to move to the Premier League rather than sign a new contract.

An attacking midfielder, Mkhitaryan captains the Armenia national team and joined Dortmund in 2013 from Shakhtar Donetsk for £23.5m.

He got 18 goals and 25 assists last term for the German club, scoring during their thrilling Europa League defeat at the hands of Liverpool, and was named the Bundesliga Players’ Player of the Season.

Capped 59 times by Armenia, he is their all-time leading goalscorer, having been on target 19 times for his country.

Mourinho has been linked with several players since he was appointed by United and Sweden forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also set to have a medical next week for the experienced Portuguese boss.
