PanARMENIAN.Net - Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be bombed out of Manchester United in January — after only one start this season, The Sun revealed.
The Armenian flop moved to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund for £30million in July.
At the time he was considered one of Europe’s most sought-after players.
But despite impressive displays in training, the 27-year-old midfielder has failed to convince boss Jose Mourinho.
Mkhitaryan picked up a thigh injury on international duty last month and has not played for United since the Manchester derby on September 10.
Former United and England midfielder Owen Hargreaves is surprised a player of his quality keeps being overlooked.
Hargreaves, 35, said: “I can’t believe he’s not getting a look-in. He’d be a banker in my starting XI.
“He had a slow start at Dortmund too and was the players’ player of the year last season.
“He scored 23 goals and had 32 assists, which are staggering numbers.
“He’s a sensitive guy. It would’ve been perfect had he started off flying but the slow start has probably hit his confidence.”
