Arsenal announce the signing of Mkhitaryan from Manchester United


Finally arsenal can confirm that they have completed the signing of Mkhitaryan in a swap deal from Manchester United.


Arsenal has finally announced the signing of Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan on a long-term contract.


The Armenian moves to the Emirates in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, who has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan, 29, held the key to Sanchez’s move to the Theatre of Dreams and he spent 48 hours mulling over a move to the Emirates. The Armenian wanted the Gunners to match the wages he received at Old Trafford and it appears his demands have been met and surpassed from what we understand.


Speaking at his unveiling with the gunners outfit, Mkhitaryan expressed his happiness at joining Arsenal and said he’s looking forward to competing for silverware with the club.


He quoted saying: ‘I’m very happy that we could finish this deal and I’m very happy to be here.

It’s a dream come true because I’ve always dreamed of playing for Arsenal. Now that I’m here, I’ll do my best for this club to create history.’
