Henrikh Mkhitaryan is keen to leave Manchester United in January and return to former club Borussia Dortmund but will be forced to apologise if he’s to return to the Bundesliga outfit, reports claim.
The Armenian’s exit left a bitter taste in the mouths of Dortmund chiefs as he pushed through a move to Old Trafford in 2016 but his time in the Premier League looks set to end sooner rather than later.
His agent Mino Raiola was said to have thrown a chair in heated discussions with the club as he engineered Mkhitaryan’s escape, although the grass has not been much greener in English football.
After a fast start to the 2017/18 season, Mkhitaryan has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho and he has now decided that he wants to return to Germany, according to Bild.
Mkhitaryan would have to sincerely apologise to Dortmund bosses should he return for the manner in which he and his agent behaved the summer before last, but there is also likely a financial stumbling block that will stop the club luring him away from Manchester.
Indeed, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke played down talk of the 28-year-old returning in January.
‘I know the economic details of his transfer to Man United like nobody else,’ Watzke told Bild.
‘That’s why [his return] is only conceivable with a great deal of imagination.’
