Reports Manchester United To Sell R543m Outcast To Make Way For Mesut Ozil
Manchester United are reportedly ready to sell a £30 million (R543 million) outcast in order to make way for Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil.
According to the Daily Mirror, Jose Mourinho is ready to offload the underperforming Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the upcoming transfer window so that he can make space for the German midfielder.
The Armenian international has struggled to make a lasting impact at the Red Devils, and his latest performances have seen himself drop down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Mourinho has apparently said that he is keen on reuniting with Ozil, who he worked with during his time at Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The former Los Blancos playmaker is in the last six months of his contract at Arsenal and has been linked with the Red Devils, as well as a return to La Liga.
The Gunners are trying their utmost to keep their midfielder, and it has been reported that they have offered him a new deal worth £275 000 (R4.93 million) a week.
The 29-year-old has made 13 appearances for the Emirates side this season, scoring two goals and assisting in a further five more.
