Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are ready to bring back one time Arsenal target Henrikh Mkhitaryan to The Westfalenstadion Stadium after the player’s falling out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
During the summer transfer window Arsenal and Manchester United were apparently vying for the signature of the player but manager Arsene Wenger failed to push ahead with the deal and Mourinho secured a deal for the midfielder.
However, the report in The Metro claims that the Bundesliga giants are now looking of lure the Armenian back to Germany after he has failed to set the Premier League alight under flop Mourinho.
They further report that it has been confirmed by Dortmund coach Tomas Tuchel that he will bring back Mkhitaryan to Germany and he has confirmed that to bosses Hans-Joachim Watzke and Michael Zorc.
Like many players at Man United, Mkhitaryan has fallen out with the abrasive Mourinho, and not featured very much at all this season as the manager’s relationships with several key players has all but disappeared, so there’s a good chance he could leave Old Trafford, however, it’s yet to be seen if there’s any truth in the Dortmund coaches wild claims.
We are set to face a threadbare Man United who are on the slide this coming weekend with what is bound to be a threadbare side of our own, with Santi Cazorla and Hector Bellerin definitely out of the game, with major doubts around Alexis Sanchez who is away with Chile on international duty.
