The Chile international is set to earn £500,000-a-week at United after leaving Arsenal.
Jose Mourinho has let Mkhitaryan leave as he has fallen down the pecking order since the start of the season at the club.

“It was very tearful,” said one source.
“Henrikh has been a very popular figure here at United.
“We know he isn’t too happy at the way this deal has been forced upon him. He realises he has more chance of playing at Arsenal, but he would have preferred to leave on his own terms.”
