Prolific last season, Mkhitaryan will endear himself to United fans further by virtue of the fact he turned down a move to Liverpool before joining Dortmund.
A wide attacker is taking a risk with his career joining Mourinho, however. Juan Mata may have cautionary words for Mkhitaryan upon his first day of training.
Nonetheless, Jose is having a good week.
Oh, by the way, it's Mick-tar-ian.
