Borussia Dortmund insist there are no problems between them and Mkhitaryan

Bundesliga strugglers Borussia Dortmund have played down rumours of the exit of Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Wantaway Mkhitaryan is being tracked by Premier League trio Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

Only yesterday, his agent Mino Raiola hinted at a possible summer move, with Juventus also keen.

He told Bild:  “Henrikh wants to leave Dortmund at the end of the season. We will have to wait and see what we can do.”

However, Dortmund have insisted that there is no problem between player and club, rather between club and agent.

Club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke responded to Raiola’s comments by telling Kicker:

 “Perhaps there is a problem between Raiola and Borussia Dortmund, but there is definitely no problem between Mkhitaryan and the club.”

Raiola also represents Paris St-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juventus’ Paul Pogba.

Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has rendered Mkhitaryan almost invisible this season, preferring to deploy Shinji Kagawa or Marco Reus behind Ciro Immobile up front.
