Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Old Trafford has restored the blockbuster feeling to Manchester United, with the punters propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern waxing impact over the potential impact of the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’. 

Having already signed Eric Bailly for £30m, the Red Devils continue to be linked with a number of top stars from around the continent, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

As the Portuguese begins to put his plans in place at the Theatre of Dreams, he could be closing in on yet another blockbuster deal.

According to Sky Sports, United have agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund over the transfer of playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan, of around £26.3m.

It could call an end to one of the sagas of this burgeoning summer transfer window, with the Armenian thought to have agreed personal terms with the Manchester giants.

Arsenal were also linked with a move, having entered his final 12 months on his deal at Signal Iduna Park.

For Dortmund, it is yet another summer where they have lost some of their top talents, including the likes of Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan.

How much will Mkhitaryan improve Man United?
