Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been ruled out for Manchester United’s next 3 games with a thigh injury.
Mkhitaryan signed for Manchester United on a four-year contract for a transfer fee reported to be around £26m, with the option to extend for a further year.
He arrived as the Bundesliga player of the season, but has failed to enforce his reputation since then.
Mkhitaryan created 82 chances for Dortmund in the league last season, and had 15 assists. He also scored 11 goals for Dortmund as they finished second in the Bundesliga.

However, at Manchester United Mkhitaryan, he is behind Spaniard Juan Mata in the pecking order. Mata was touted to leave the club this summer, but ended up staying.
The Armenian captain started in the Manchester Derby, but was taken off at half time after an extremely underwhelming first half, giving the ball away 12 times.
He will miss Manchester United’s Europa League fixture against Dutch side Feyenoord. He will also miss the Premier League game against Watford, and the English League Cup match against Northampton.
Mkhitaryan has not been named in the Europa League squad to face Feyenoord. Luke Shaw, Wayne Rooney and Antonio Valencia aren’t a part of the squad too.
The squad named for the game is as follows:
De Gea, Romero, Johnstone; Darmian, Bailly, Blind, Fosu-Mensah, Rojo, Smalling; Carrick, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Memphis, Pogba, Schneiderlin, Young; Ibrahimovic, Martial, Rashford.
