Attacker To Undergo Man Utd Medical Today Ahead Of £26.3m Move
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to undergo his medical with Manchester United on Wednesday ahead of his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund
The opening of the summer transfer window is now open so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to undergo his Man Utd medical.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to undergo his medical with Manchester United on Wednesday ahead of his £26.3m move from Borussia Dortmund, according to TeamTalk.
Mkhitaryan has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and after refusing to sign a new contract with Dortmund, the attacker has been trying to force his way out of Germany in recent weeks.
After prolonged negotiations, Dortmund finally agreed to cash-in with the Bundesliga giants confirming on their official website over the weekend that they’d reached an agreement to sell the 27-year-old to Man Utd.
No official statement has been released by United as yet but boss Jose Mourinho appeared to confirm the news at his press conference yesterday. The Portuguese coach, who has already snapped up Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, asked United’s media manager Karen Shotbolt: “The third player is already official, or not yet?”, to which she replied: “No, soon”.
It looks like the deal could be wrapped up today as Team Talk are reporting that Mkhitaryan is due at Carrington on Wednesday to undergo his medical after agreeing personal terms ahead of his £26.3m move.
As long as there are no last minute complications, Mkhitaryan could begin training with his new team mates immediately as United are set to kick-start their pre-season preparations on Thursday.
The Armenian international will be an excellent addition as he’d developed in to one of the most dangerous attackers in world football over the past few years with Dortmund and cemented that reputation after scoring 23 goals and providing 32 assists in all competitions last season.

United could certainly do with that sort of creativity in attack after only scoring 49 league goals last season and I think Mkhitaryan could prove to be one of the signings of the entire transfer window, once he completes his proposed switch to Old Trafford.
