Manchester United have signed Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund, the German club have announced.

Mkhitaryan has just one year left on his Dortmund contract and was adamant that he would not sign a new deal, forcing Dortmund to sell now rather than lose the player on a free transfer next summer.
