United make ‘improved offer’ for Dortmund’s Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is poised to be Mourinhio's second big signing after defender Eric Bailly

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan after making an “improved offer” for the midfielder, the Bundesliga club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has said.

The Armenia international has been linked by British media with a move to Old Trafford under new manager Jose Mourinho.

“The situation is now different. Manchester has made a much-improved offer,” Watzke told Sport Bild magazine.

“In situations like this there are always a lot of different things to consider and in the end, at one point we have to make a decision.

“As we are back in training on Monday we will decide at the weekend. I have contacted the relevant people and we will weigh things up …then the board will make the decision.”

The 27-year-old scored 11 goals in 31 league games as Dortmund finished second last season and could be Mourinho’s second signing at United after defender Eric Bailly’s arrival from Villarreal.
