Following the arrival of Eric Bailly from Villarreal, Jose Mourinho is set to bring one of the Bundesliga's best attacking midfielders to Old Trafford.

Reliable German journalist Raphael Honigstein reports that Borussia Dortmund have sent one of their representatives to Manchester to finalise a deal that would send Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester United.

The 27-year-old scored 11 goals with Dortmund last year and added another 20 assists as BVB pushed Bayern Munich all the way in the Bundesliga for the first time in a number of years.

Mourinho has wasted little time putting his own stamp on things at Old Trafford and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic expected to be announced in the coming days, it's all action in both the red and blue sides of Manchester.
