Manchester United have finally confirmed the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan after weeks of speculation.

The Armenian arrives at Old Trafford for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal, becoming Jose Mourinho’s third summer signing after Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But United weren’t the only Premier League side chasing Mkhitaryan this summer. There were numerous reports linking the winger with the Gunners immediately after the season ended with The Sun reporting that he had started house hunting in north London ahead of a proposed move.

Many Gooners were adamant that they were about to sign the 27-year-old and they were considered favourites ahead of Manchester United given their involvement in next season’s Champions League.

However, as the weeks went on, Mourinho’s appointment obviously played a major factor in Mkhitaryan’s decision and he eventually decided on a move to the Theatre of Dreams.

Mkhitaryan's comments

Upon signing, Mkhitaryan said: "I am very proud to join Manchester United, this move is a dream come true for me. I am excited to play for a club with such an illustrious history and hope to be part of it for a long time. I thank the trust the club and Jose Mourinho have put in me. Finally, I believe playing for such a great club honours my father’s memory, and the inspiration and drive he gave to me when I was young.
