Roma News | Jose Mourinho offers new deal to Henrikh Mkhitaryan to extend his stay at Roma

Due to their harsh history at previous club Manchester United, it was inevitable that the Armenian would leave Rome once it was revealed that Mourinho would replace Paulo Fonseca.

According to The Mirror, Mkhitaryan has been given a new two-year contract for £3.8 million a season and must decide whether to take it or become a free agent within the next 48 hours.

During his time in Manchester, the Armenian struggled to recreate the form that earned him a transfer to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund, and Mourinho chastised him for his disappointing performances.

Last month, Mkhitaryan commented about how difficult it was to work under Mourinho’s instruction. A few weeks later, he was named Roma’s new manager.

‘Yes, I could answer yes,’ he said to Forza Roma when asked if the ‘Special One’ was a difficult guy to please.

‘He’s a winner by nature. He wants you to succeed, so you do what he says. Anyone would find it tough. There have been disagreements and confrontations. They haven’t had a significant influence on the quality of the work or the three prizes that have been won.’

Mourinho has blamed the 32-year-old winger for United’s poor record on many occasions, according to the winger.

‘Once Mourinho met me at breakfast and told me: ‘Because of you, the press criticizes me. Really Mister?’ I answered. It’s not something I’m doing on purpose.’

Mkhitaryan was finally traded to Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal.

Despite his brief tenure in north London, he has no regrets about joining Arsenal and working with Arsene Wenger.

‘I know Wenger and Arsenal were interested in me at the time of the Mourinho issues,’ he continued.

‘Wenger wanted me to play for Arsenal. Going to them was a childhood dream come true for me. Moving to Wenger’s Arsenal was a fairy-tale come true.’
