‘Sin’ to abandon attempts of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s Man Utd move, says agent

The agent of Henrikh Mkhitaryan said it would be wrong to abandon attempts to get the Borussia Dortmund midfielder a move to Manchester United, the reports.

The Bundesliga club are refusing to let the 27-year-old leave following the departures of both Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundongan this summer.

“It would be a sin to stop talking,” said agent Mino Raiola.

“I am a positive guy. If I wasn’t confident of reaching some kind of conclusion, I wouldn’t try.”

The Armenian has a year left on his contract and has told Dortmund he will not sign another deal, with United his preferred option.

Raiola added: “I am very proud Manchester United want him and the talks are being held in a good atmosphere, but at the moment Dortmund are still saying no.”

New United manager Jose Mourinho is attempting to improve his squad after replacing Louis van Gaal.

“Manchester United is a great club, with a great coach,” said Raiola.
