Arsenal-bound star Henrikh Mkhitaryan said a ‘tearful goodbye’ to his team-mates on Friday…but it looks like some are taking his exit harder than others.
The Armenian is expected to undergo his medical with the Gunners this afternoon and an announcement on his move to the Emirates could be made tomorrow.
United’s deal for Alexis Sanchez was dependent on Mkhitaryan agreeing to join the Gunners and, though he feels pushed out by the Red Devils, he’s still a popular figure with his team-mates at Old Trafford.
So much so that United defender Marcos Rojo took time out of a family trip to London this weekend to visit Mkhitaryan ahead of his move to the Gunners and to say his final goodbyes.
Mkhitaryan was with his agent, Mino Raiola, at a London hotel when Rojo arrived to greet his soon-to-be former team-mate.
