Cape Town - Manchester United have agreed a transfer fee for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

According to Sky Sports, talks between the two club's have "reached an advanced stage" as United look to make their second signing during the off season.

The 27-year-old has already agreed personal terms with the Red Devils and will undergo a medical next week.

Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho as the club's new manager, the Armenian attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for weeks.

It now seems that the 'Special One' will land his man as United yearn for silverware.

Mourinho already signed highly-rated Ivory Coast centre-back Eric Bailly for a reported £30m.
