Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains confident he will leave Signal Iduna Park in order to complete his move to Manchester United this summer. The midfielder has been in fine form for the Bundesliga outfit in the 2015/16 season, scoring 19 goals and registering 24 assists in all competitions.
The Armenian international's form has seen him attract interest from the Red Devils, while their league rivals Arsenal have also expressed their desire to land him. The Independent reported the Gunners, along with United are keen on bringing him to the Premier League.
Mkhitaryan's agent Mino Raiola revealed his client wants to play for the 20-time English champions after admitting a chance to play for United is a "unique opportunity." He has one year left on his contract and Dortmund director Hans-Joachim Watzke confirmed the player has decided against signing an extension.
The Bundesliga side have made their intentions clear that their star midfielder will not be allowed to leave the club this summer and are willing to let him go for nothing after his contract expires next summer. According to The Times, Mkhitaryan remains confident of sealing a move to United, despite Dortmund's desire to keep him at the club for one more year.
Mkhitaryan has snubbed a chance to join the north London club as he has set his sights on making a switch to Old Trafford. Raiola once again reiterated the player's desire to join Jose Mourinho's side and admitted that he is trying to resolve the situation with the midfielder's current employers.
"He [Mkhitaryan] wants to go to Manchester United and we are still trying to resolve the situation," Raiola told The Times.
Dortmund already lost defender Mats Hummels to league rivals Bayern Munich, while Ilkay Gundogan has completed his switch to Manchester City as the German international become Pep Guardiola's first summer signing.
