Manchester United have finally announced today that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined the club.

Mkhitaryan had an incredible 2015/16, scoring 23 goals and assisting in a further 32 in what was his best season with Die Borussen.

Mkhitaryan signs a four-year contract with the option of a further year.

The Armenian was voted the Bundesliga’s best player of last season by his fellow professionals and is his country’s all time top scorer.

Mkhitaryan spoke of his joy following the move.

“I am very proud to join Manchester United, this move is a dream come true for me. I am excited to play for a club with such an illustrious history and hope to be part of it for a long time.

I thank the trust the club and Jose Mourinho have put in me. Finally, I believe playing for such a great club honours my father’s memory, and the inspiration and drive he gave to me when I was young.”

His new manager Jose Mourinho was equally pleased to have acquired such a talent.

“Henrikh is a very talented footballer who has been in such prolific form for both his club and his country. He is a real team player with great skill, vision and also has a good eye for goal.

I am delighted he has chosen to sign for United. I believe he will make an impact on the team very quickly as his style of play is suited to the Premier League. We are all looking forward to working with him.”
