Borussia Dortmund have confirmed Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Manchester United.
The German club confirmed on their website on Saturday that the Armenian midfielder will join Jose Mourinho’s side.
He is expected to cost the Red Devils around £26million.
Mkhitaryan has just one year remaining on his contract at Dortmund and is set to become Jose Mourinho’s third summer signing after the arrivals of Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 27-year-old Mkhitaryan scored 23 times and notched 32 assists for Dortmund last season.
Dortmund had previously insisted Mkhitaryan was not for sale, but after rejecting United’s opening offer of £19m, they have accepted the improved bid for a player with only one year left on his contract.
Having already lost Mats Hummels to Bayern Munich and with star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in demand from Europe’s top clubs, Dortmund were reluctant to wave goodbye to another key man this summer.
Dortmund chief-executive Hans-Joachim Watzke had earlier said a decision would be made this week on Mkhitaryan’s future, with the Bundesliga club ready to accept United’s latest offer.
“We will assess his situation this week,” said Watzke. “We need to discuss it. It’s a difficult decision.”
Mkhitaryan moves to United in time to take part in pre-season with training set to begin on July 6.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
