Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Manchester United are expected to officially announce the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan next week, according to reports. Mkhitaryan was a key player for Dortmund last term and they wanted to keep him at the Westfalenstadion for the remaining year on his contract but has almost completed his a move to Old Trafford after both clubs agreed a €42.5m fee.

Raphael Varane has allegedly decided to leave Real Madrid with the Premier League a possible destination for the defender. The 23-year-old was ruled out of Euro 2016, where he was set to star in France’s defence and is said to be tired of waiting on the bench at Madrid.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic should complete his long-anticipated move to Old Trafford by the end of the week, according to BBC. The Swedish striker was first linked with Man United when Jose Mourinho was appointed but speculation has soon turned to an almost certainty that a deal would go through eventually.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly made no attempt to contact Ryan Giggs at Man United. The Welshman’s future at Old Trafford has been uncertain after the Portuguese boss took over and many expect him to end his 29-year association with the club.
