Man Utd close on Mkhitaryan deal

Ibrahimovic switch also nearing completion

Manchester United's move to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund is nearing completion as the German club have admitted defeat in their efforts to keep the attacking midfielder.

Although the 1997 Champions League winners claim in public that they are not prepared to allow the 27-year-old to leave, in private they are resigned to losing the player and have already bid for his potential replacement.

Bayer Leverkuen have rejected Dortmund's offer for Karim Bellarabi while the latter also have an interest in resigning Mario Gotze from Bayern Munich.

Mkhitaryan has just one year left on his contract and is desperate to make the move to Manchester; with just a year remaining and no prospect of him signing a new deal, Dortmund are ready to let him move on for approximately £30m.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic meanwhile, who shares the same agent as Mkhitaryan, is due to meet Jose Mourinho next week with the Swede having already agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club.

The 34-year-old however, is waiting to put pen to paper until he discusses the extent of his potential role at Utd.
