The elegant steps of Henrikh Mkhitaryan are unlikely to grace the Premier League any time soon.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool as “just rumours.”

Mkhitaryan has been in spectacular form this season and has caught the eye of the Premier League giants, claim the Daily Mirror.

But the Armenia international is hoping Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel can convince him to stay.

It wouldn’t be the first time Tuchel’s words have persuaded Mkhitaryan to remain a part of Dortmund’s setup.

Speaking to Deutsche Welle, Mkhitaryan revealed how Tuchel convinced him to stay by promising him he could become a “high-class” player under the 42-year-old.


He said: “At one point I doubted it because I was not really confident that after a bad season he could make me a high-class player. But he did it and I’m thankful to him.”

High-class indeed. The former Shakhtar Donetsk player has scored 10 goals and made 10 assists in 21 games this season.

The 27-year-old hopes Tuchel, who replaced Jurgen Klopp last April, can sell the idea of staying once again.

Mkhitaryan said: “I hope so. If he did the first step, why not the second?"


It’s news that will disappoint United and Liverpool fans.

Mkhitaryan has emerged into one of the finest attacking midfielders in Europe and a player of his quality would vastly improve Louis van Gaal and Klopp’s sides.

Mkhitaryan played two seasons under Klopp and you have to wonder why the German doesn’t seem interested in making a strong push to sign him, especially given Liverpool’s reported interest in another attacking midfielder, Alex Teixeira.

As for United, any player that can improve the football currently being played at Old Trafford is a necessity.

On talk of leaving the German club, Mkhitaryan simply said: “They’re rumours, just rumours.”
