Manchester United have improved their offer for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Borussia Dortmund’s CEO has confirmed.
The Armenian winger has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks, with reliable Sky Sports reporting that the transfer fee between the two clubs has already been agreed on Sunday.
Dortmund repeatedly said that the 27-year old will stay at Signal Iduna Park and see out his one-year remaining contract, and the club also rejected the first Manchester United bid.
However, German outfit are now looking to cash in on the attacker instead, with Borussia Dortmund’s CEO Hanz-Joachim Watzke admitting the situation is now different.
“Manchester United have substantially improved their offer,” Watzke told Bild.
“The situation has changed. There are always several aspects in such a decision. I have already contacted the appropriate people and we will weigh up all the pros and cons at the weekend. Then, the board will make a decision.
“And as we start training on Monday, we will do that on the weekend, definitely.”
Mkhitaryan, who was signed for a club record fee in summer of 2013 by current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, will set a new Dortmund record for money received from a sale after completing his Old Trafford switch.
