Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to arrive at Manchester Airport's private terminal at 3.30pm this afternoon. 

This has been reported by the Manchester Evening News, who claim that Mkhitaryan's move to Old Trafford is now nearing completion. 

The technically-gifted midfielder has long been linked with a move to the Red Devils and now it appears that the deal is closer than ever.

Mkhitaryan, 27, struck a magnificent 23 goals in all competitions last season - more than any other United player. He also racked up as many as 18 assists so should prove quite the signing for Jose Mourinho and co. 

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke recently admitted that United had upped their offer for the player. 

Mkhitaryan saga 

He stated earlier this week: "Manchester United have substantially improved their offer.

"The situation has changed. There are always several aspects in such a decision. I have already contacted the appropriate people and we will weigh up all the pros and cons. Then the board will make a decision."

The fee that Manchester United are set to pay Dortmund for the midfielder's services appears to be uncertain at this stage, but it's certainly expected to be a big one. Indeed, it was recently reported that United's latest offer was in the region of £35.2 million.

But it's not only Mkhitaryan that Manchester United fans are excited about right now. That's because enigmatic Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed on Thursday that he's set to sign for the club.

At 34-years-old, Ibrahimovic is approaching the latter stages of his career, but it's safe to say that he's still one of the best strikers in world football.

And the same report from the Manchester Evening News claims that Ibrahimovic will also land in Manchester later today. Things are clearly starting to take off for Mourinho at United.
