Dortmund admit Mkhitaryan could join Manchester United at the weekend

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that they will come to a decision over Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s future soon, the Daily Star reports.

Manchester United are closing in on the Armenian midfielder and Watzke confirmed that a new, improved, bid had arrived.

Dortmund were desperate to keep hold of the 27-year-old but an offer in the region of £33m looks like it has convinced them to sell.

They wanted him to stay and see out the last 12 months of his contract but agent Mino Raiola went into overdrive in a bid to get him out.

Watzke told German paper WAZ: “The situation is now different.

“Manchester have made a much improved offer.

“In situations like this there are always a lot of different things to consider and in the end at one point we have to make a decision.

“And as we are back in training on Monday we will decide at the weekend.

“I have contacted the relevant people and we will weigh things up at the weekend. And then the board will make the decision, definitely at the weekened.”
