Manchester United reportedly have no intention of offloading summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan during the forthcoming January transfer window, according to Squawka.
The Premier League side, who have dropped down to eighth in the English top-flight standings following Saturday’s goalless encounter against newly promoted Burnley at Old Trafford, have been linked with selling the Armenia international after a disappointing start to his career at The Theatre of Dreams.
The 27-year-old, who has 60 international caps for his country, has been restricted to just five appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils so far this season, failing to score or provide an assist.
Mkhitaryan, who joined United from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund back in July following his initial £27m switch, has found himself out-of-favour under manager Jose Mourinho this term.
However, the report suggests the club are not looking to move the Armenian ace on in the January transfer window, with the attacking midfielder determined to prove his worth to the ‘Special One’ having trained alone at United’s training complex on Sunday, despite the squad having a day off.
