United close in
Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan after making an ‘‘improved offer’’ for the midfielder, the Bundesliga club’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has said. The Armenia international has been linked by British media with a move to Old Trafford. ‘‘The situation is now different. Manchester have made a much improved offer,’’ Watzke told Sport Bild magazine.
