Weeks of speculation were today put to an end: Henrikh Mkhitaryan has signed for Arsenal on a long-term contract in a deal which sees Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United.
The 29-year-old midfielder started his career with Armenian side FC Pyunik, where he won the Armenian Premier League on four occasions. He then moved to Ukraine where he played for Metalurh Donetsk, before joining Shakhtar Donetsk, where he made 72 appearances, winning the Ukrainian Premier League three times. In 2013, Mkhitaryan transferred to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, where he played a total of 90 times, during which time he was part of the 2014 German Super Cup-winning squad.
Speaking about his move to Arsenal, Mkhitaryan said: “I’m very happy that we could finish this deal and I’m very happy to be here. It’s a dream come true because I’ve always dreamed of playing for Arsenal. Now that I’m here, I’ll do my best for this club to create history.”
