As confirmed by their official website, Manchester United have completed the transfer of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The attacking midfielder has been linked with an Old Trafford move consistently in recent weeks, in no small part due to his Westfalenstadion contract entering its final twelve months.

This morning, Manchester United insider Craig Norwood claimed on Twitter that Mkhitaryan had a medical at Old Trafford scheduled for today.

And the Carrington outfit have now confirmed the former Shakhtar star’s arrival via their official website, signing him on a four-year contract.

The 27-year-old is now United’s third major signing of the summer, following deals for £30million defender Eric Bailly and PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

However, another stellar acquisition is expected before the summer window draws to a close following the latest comments from Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils boss told reporters yesterday; “We made a nucleus of four positions as priority to give a certain balance to the squad, and a push in terms of quality that I want.

“From these targets we have three, until we have the fourth we are working hard on that, with Mr Woodward and the owners.”
