Jose Mourinho hints Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be sold if price is met

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could leave the club this month, as every player "has a price".

The Armenian started this season in a similar vein, laying on regular assists for the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, before a loss of form led to another ostracizing by Mourinho.

The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder has struggled to make a lasting impression at Old Trafford since his £30m move to Manchester United from the Bundesliga club in 2016.

United are looking to extend their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions, with Mourinho's men keeping clean sheets in their last three games - against Southampton, Everton and Derby.

The 36-year-old former Sweden worldwide suffered a horrific knee injury back in April 2017 in Manchester United's Europa League campaign and despite making an early comeback, he is yet to reach full fitness.

"My approach to players is that every player has a price", Mourinho said when asked directly about whether Mkhitaryan would stay, as quoted by Sky Sports.

'We have played nine games in December and two more at the beginning of 2018, and now we have a whole week with no fixtures on the schedule until next Monday.

"I think every player has a price".

'And I am not the kind of blind manager.

"So when the transfer window is open is also open for any club that is interested in our players. We built a squad with this idea, this philosophy that I share with [executive vice-chairman] Mr Woodward and the owners, that normally investment is made in the summer", he explained to reporters. Still, if the right player comes along, and at a steal of a price, you have to pull the trigger on executing the transfer buy. Then it is up to us to make the decision yes or no, is up to us to decide what we think is the right price.

Boss Mourinho has omitted Mkhitaryan from his matchday squad eight times in the last 10 weeks but expects him to feature against Stoke next.

"He's our player, a very good player". So tomorrow training, then Sunday selected and Monday play'.
