Jose Mourinho ‘offers new deal’ to Henrikh Mkhitaryan to extend his stay at AS Roma

Jose Mourinho is set to offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan a new deal in order to keep the Armenian international at AS Roma. The 32-year old’s current deal expires at the end of June this year.

In the last few hours, there has been direct contact between the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, and the club. Progress has been made on renewing the deal and offering the player a new two-year deal reportedly worth £3.8million a season. He must decide within the next 48 hours whether he accepts or opts to become a free agent.


The new agreement between Mkhitaryan and Roma is still not signed, but in the next few hours, the parties will sit down at the table to sign the contract. This is good news for the yellow and red club, which receives a clear signal from the Armenian trequartista’s entourage that he wants to be a part of Mourinho’s new project.

The Armenian played under Mourinho for Manchester United where he failed to live up to his Dortmund form, for which he was criticized publicly by Mourinho. The relationship between the two was reported to be fractured and Mkhitaryan eventually secured a move to Arsenal in a swap deal that involved Alexis Sanchez.

In 34 appearances in the Serie A 20/21 season, Mkhitaryan has scored 13 goals and racked up 11 assists for AS Roma.

When asked if the ‘Special One’ was a hard man to please he told Forza Roma: ‘Yes, I could say yes. He’s a winner by nature. He wants you to win and you do what he asks you.”
