News has made its way into the Football Transfer Tavern today that a major Man United target has turned his back on his club in order to force a move through to Old Trafford.
A group of United fans over by the dartboard have just heard the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has made it very clear to his manager, Thomas Tuchel, that he is Manchester bound.
According to German newspaper, Bild, the Armenian forward has taken the bold move of sending Tuchel a text in which he said, “I go to Manchester United.”
It was reported earlier this week that United had submitted an improved bid of £33m for the 27-year-old in an effort to make the playmaker Mourinho’s first signing as the new manager at Old Trafford.
Dortmund’s want-away forward bagged an impressive 18 goals in 51 appearances for Der BVB last season, and Mourinho will be looking for him to continue such form in the Premier League and terrify opposition defences as United bid to win their first title since 2013. He’d be a good player in your fantasy league with Draftkings promo code that’s for sure.
United fans? Are you as excited about this signing as the United fans at the bar? Do you really want a player with a tendency to disrespect a manager like he has done? Let us know below…
