Jose Mourinho admits Henrikh Mkhitaryan could leave Manchester United after falling out of favour

Jose Mourinho is ready to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan .

The Armenian playmaker has struggled to win over the Manchester United boss this season and was reported to be part of the package to tempt Arsenal to sell Alexis Sanchez.

Mkhitaryan was bought from Borussia Dortmund in a £26.8million deal 18 months ago after being named the Bundesliga players’ player of the year.

Mourinho said: "My approach is that every player has a price. And I am not the kind of blind manager.

"Blind in the sense that this player is untouchable, this one can never be sold."

"I think every player has a price.

"So when the transfer window is open it’s also open for any club that is interested in our players. Then it’s up to us to make the decision yes or no. It’s up to us to make the right price.

"Mkhitaryan played the last match in the FA Cup against Derby. He probably will play the next one against Stoke. He is our player and a very good player. So tomorrow training, then Sunday selected and Monday play."

In his final season for Dortmund Mkhitaryan scored 18 goals in 51 games as well as making 15 assists. But this season he’s without a goal in his last 13 games for United and was left out in November after a spat with Mourinho.
