Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has left the club to join Manchester United. The German club issue a delightful statement:

Following an intensive round of discussions, Borussia Dortmund accepted the Armenian international’s wish to join Manchester United next season.¬†Based on a completely new situation, this transfer was a difficult trade-off for us. Manchester made us a very attractive offer. Had we refused it, the player would have left us on a free transfer in 2017 and we would only have delayed the matter of a replacement for a year,” explained Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

Borussia Dortmund would like to wish Henrikh Mkhitaryan all the best for the upcoming season in the Premier League and the UEFA Europa League.

Dortmund shoot. They score. The goalscorer leaves the club. Plus ca change at Dortmund.
