Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho ups Henrikh Mkhitaryan bid to £28m as Dortmund stand firm
Manchester United have made an increased £28million move for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Old Trafford giants have upped the ante in their attempts to land the Borussia Dortmund midfielder with a significantly improved second offer.
And there is increasing confidence a deal for Mkhitaryan will be agreed, according to sources close to the negotiations.
New boss Jose Mourinho has earmarked the 27-year-old Armenian as one of his next big-money targets.
And United’s determination to land Mkhitaryan for Mourinho is reflected in the size of their follow-up bid and quick response to having their initial £19m offer knocked back.
