Mkhitaryan: Bid rejected

According to reports, Manchester United have failed in a bid to land much-vaunted midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Armenian has been one of the most mentioned names in this summer's transfer rumours but after Dortmund lost two big names already this summer (Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels) the German side appear determined not to let him go.

According to the Mirror, United offered £19m for the midfielder, and the bid was 'heavily instalment based'.

This offer was rejected, despite the fact that the player is entering his last year of his current deal.

The player is reported to want a move and he has been linked with United as well as Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.
