Manchester United may have experienced their second transfer leak of the day as the official team site briefly allowed users to purchase an Adidas Jersey with target player Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s name on the back, according to British news source Express.co.uk.
The 27 year-old Armenian has been linked with an Old Trafford move valued at roughly £34m for at least a month now, and the online store’s mistake might just be the confirmation the football world has been looking for.
The official website’s error follows close on the heels of an earlier leak, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirming his Manchester move on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
The duo are expected to be key components of manager Jose Mourinho’s attack next season, and mark the Argentine’s second and third signing of the summer. United have already confirmed the signing of Villareal defender Eric Bailly.
According to the source, “The Blue away strip is up for grabs for £71.95 on the website with the winger’s name on the back – United are yet to unveil their new home kit for the 2016/17 season.”
While it’s still in the realm of possibility that the shirt sale was purely wishful thinking, the deal was widely expected to be officially confirmed early next week.
