Jose Mourinho hints at Henrikh Mkhitaryan January exit

The Armenian has only been at the club since June 2016, but he might already be off

We’re only 16 days away until the January transfer window swings open.

So it’s around this sort of time that Jose Mourinho starts hinting at what he’ll be getting up to in the January sales.

The Manchester United manager has claimed ‘every player has a price’, with midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan first in the firing line.

The BBC report that there has been a ‘breakdown of trust’ between the Armenian and Mourinho, which could spell the end of Mkhitaryan’s United career.

Speaking before United’s trip to West Brom on Sunday, Mourinho said: “If a player is not happy and brings with the request a number we consider good for us, I would never say no.

“That is my approach as a manager. Every player has a price.”


It won’t be the first time Mourinho has bombed out a player who was seemingly at the top of his game less than a year ago.

Since arriving at the club, Mourinho has allowed Memphis Depay and Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave, and Mkhitaryan could be the latest player to see the exit door.
