DORTMUND — Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will sign for Manchester United.

A Dortmund statement on Facebook read:

“Borussia Dortmund and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan (27) go their seperate ways this summer.

“Following an intensive round of discussions, Borussia Dortmund accepted the Armenian international’s wish to join Manchester United next season.

“Based on a completely new situation, this transfer was a difficult trade-off for us. Manchester made us a very attractive offer. Had we refused it, the player would have left us on a free transfer in 2017 and we would only have delayed the matter of a replacement for a year,” explained Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

“Borussia Dortmund would like to wish Henrikh Mkhitaryan all the best for the upcoming season in the Premier League and the UEFA Europa League”.

According to English media the two clubs have agreed on a fee of £26million  for the deal. Mkhitaryan is yet to agree personal terms and will need to pass a medical before the move is officially confirmed, but he is poised to become Jose Mourinho’s third major summer signing.

The 27-year-old will also need to obtain a work permit before the transfer is ratified by the Premier League.
