3 Players Who Could Follow Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s £26.3m Move To Manchester United

According to the reports from Sky Sports, Manchester United have agreed the deal to sign Borussia Dortmund’s midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The reports have stated that the Devils have agreed to pay a reported fee of £26.3m as the Armenian international has agreed the personal terms with the club.

Mkhitaryan will undergo his Manchester United medical within the next week, and we are pretty sure that every Manchester United fan is excited like anything. Mkhitaryan still has one year left in his Dortmund contract and the German club offered him a new deal few weeks back, but the 27-year-old refused to extend his stay.

Mkhitaryan had a wonderful season with the Yellow Wall as he made 51 appearances for the side and scored 23 goals. He formed a lethal partnership with Aubameyang and Reus, but it seems like he would love to travel abroad to experience a new life. The Armenian would become Jose Mourinho’s second signing of the summer and we are sure that there is more to come.

The Portuguese tactician will be looking to bring the side back to the winning days, and for that, a transformation is necessary. Jose Mourinho has already tightened his backline through the signing of Eric Bailly, and now, he will be looking to add some attacking threats to the side. Mkhitaryan’s deal is on the verge of completion, and here, we will give you 3 names, who could follow the Armenian star to the Theatre of Dreams.

  1. James Rodriguez-

The 24-year-old Columbian international had a very frustrating time with Real Madrid last season, and many believe that he might be looking to end his tenure with the club, and reports are suggesting that Manchester United could help him to end his misery by offering him a contract he cannot refuse. James was the target for Manchester United couple of years ago, but the Columbian decided to join the Galacticos instead.

Due to the brilliance of Kroos and Modric, James was unable to cement his first team spot and only managed 32 appearances for the side in all competition, scoring some handful of goals. James is one of the best players in the industry and the Devils might have to break the bank to sign the player, but the Columbian is surely worth every penny.

  1. Julian Draxler-

The 22-year-old German international was picked ahead of Mario Gotze in the clash against Slovakia, and Draxler gave a match winning performance as he listed his name on the scoresheet as well as on the assist chart. Draxler is currently playing for the German side Wolfsburg and many reports are suggesting that he might leave the side he joined last summer as they failed to qualify for Europe last campaign.

Draxler is an intelligent personnel, and is known for his game changing skills. Manchester United could surely benefit from the player, as he has got the top class experience. He didn’t have a great season with Wolfsburg last term and made limited appearance, but scored 9 goals.

  1. Fabinho-

The 22-year-old Brazilian full back is currently one of the best young talents in the industry. It is reported that Manchester United are in the chase to sign the player along with Manchester City and Napoli. Reports from talksport have stated that the Italian side Napoli have already started negotiating with AS Monaco and has launched a £8.5m bid for the defender.

With Matteo Darmian failing to prove his worth, the 22-year-old right back could become his successor at Old Trafford. He made 34 appearances for Monaco last season in Ligue 1 and scored 6 goals.
