Man United online store starts selling transfer target shirts already

Manchester United online store, United Direct is already selling Henrikh Mkhitaryan shirts.

Although, many outlets have reported the negotiations between Dortmund and United over Mkhitaryan’s transfer, nothing has been made official yet. So this mistake is huge one by the United online store as without any official confirmation from the club, they shouldn’t have started selling the jerseys.

On the other hand, Zlatan has already confirmed that he will joining Manchester United next season on a one year contract. This is really exciting news for United fans as the Swede will bring flair and swagger to Old Trafford in abundance next season. Mourinho is building an exciting team for next year but still major surgery is required to overhaul the squad. Rooney’s position is yet to be decided and it won’t be of surprise if Rooney finds himself on the bench quite a lot next season even though he is the club captain.
