DORTMUND — Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be on his way to Manchester United after being made available for a fee in the range of €40m ($45m) by Borussia Dortmund. The German club had previously refused to part with Mkhitaryan despite the Armenian reaching his last year in contract.

German publication Bild reports that Dortmund have reconsidered their decision to keep hold of the midfielder and could allow him to leave should their valuation be matched. The new development comes days after Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola confirmed that the player was desperate to move to Old Trafford and was not willing to extend his contract with the Bundesliga club.

Mkhitaryan, should he leave, would be the third major exit from Dortmund this summer, having already allowed the likes of Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan to make their way to Bayern Munich and Manchester City respectively.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke had previously hinted that they are likely to keep Mkhitaryan for the final year of his contract, irrespective of any offer from a rival club.
