According to the Italian daily Corriere dello sport, the Roman club has not reached an agreement with Manchester United over the transfer of English midfielder Smalling, who was also hired earlier this season. That's why Roman is trying to buy Henrikh Mkhitaryan's transfer from London's Arsenal, as he does not want to lose the two experienced midfielders immediately after the end of the season.
According to the source, Henrikh Mkhitaryan's agent Mino Raiola persuaded the London club to sell the Armenian football player for 10 million pounds, but the Italian side is not in a hurry yet, hoping to reduce the price, as it has not yet secured its place in the Champions League.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan once again made it clear that he wants to stay in Italy and continue his career there.
"My time in London is over. "I hope you come to an agreement with Roma because I want to stay here," he said of his role as Arsenal manager.
By the way, the Russian "Sochi" club was also interested in Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Our football player thanked for such attention, but rejected the offer, as in the near future he will connect all his plans only with the Roman club.
