Manchester United have joined the race for Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Old Trafford club has made enquiries for the Armenia international over a possible transfer this summer.
The Bundesliga side are willing to let the Armenian leave as he is refusing to sign a new contract and they are willing to sell for £25million.
Arsenal and Juventus have been in discussions in recent weeks with Arsenal considered favourites while Liverpool have long held an interest also, but they have been joined on the queue now by Manchester United.
The 27-year-old is looked after by Mino Raiola who also represents the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba.
United have an interest in each but are not alone. United did not include either a sell-on clause or an option to buy back Pogba. They are also continuing to pursue Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic as revealed in Sportsmail in May.
Dortmund are enduring a summer of change and that is hindering Manchester City’s hopes of signing Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
City have made enquiries for the Gabon international and he is keen to speak to them but Dortmund have sold Ilkay Gundogan, Mats Hummels and expect Mkhitaryan to follow. They don’t want to lose Aubameyang in the same summer but expect the saga to rumble on.
