Jose Mourinho gives injury update of Zlatan Ibrahimovic

David De Gea's current Manchester United deal runs out next year though the club hold a one-year option

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is open to letting Henrikh Mkhitaryan leave this January should a club meet his asking price.

The Armenia forward started this season in fine form but has gone off the boil completely and found game-time hard to come by recently.

United were expected to be relatively quiet in the current window, but have unexpectedly launched a move for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in a bid to snatch him from under the noses of Manchester rivals, Man City.

However, despite a disappointing display in the Red Devils' goalless draw against Southampton, Mkhitaryan was handed a start against the Championship side in the FA Cup.

Mkhitaryan has struggled to ever establish himself at Old Trafford following his mega-money move from Borussia Dortmund.

'I think a club like Manchester United is always striving for the best, ' Smalling told United's official club website.

The Armenia worldwide has started only two of United's last 15 games and was left out of Mourinho's matchday squad for six consecutive matches in November and December.

Ten-man Leicester hold lacklustre Chelsea
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte refused to discuss Manchester United rival Jose Mourinho after their 0-0 draw with Leicester City . But with no real competition or back up to rescue Chelsea , Morata looks likely to continue his struggles in front of goal .

Wenger: Ozil could still stay, but Sanchez will go
But now United have overtaken City as they are prepared to offer Arsenal far more that Pep Guardiola's £ 20m bid. Incidentally he's won trophies with us. "Mkhitaryan played the last match in the FA Cup against Derby".

Mourinho hints at Mkhitaryan United exit
If he comes to us - I don't know it will happen - he can help us. "I am focused on Liverpool ". Questioned as to whether there was any truth in the rumour, the Arsenal manager was coy.

"And I am not the kind of blind manager".

"So when the transfer window is open is also open for any club that is interested in our players".

"Our squad was built not to have new players in January, we build a squad with this idea, with this philosophy that I share with Mr Woodward and the owners, normally the investment is to be made in the summer", Mourinho said.

"He consulted other doctors and other opinions, and we all made the decision to stop treatment".

Mourinho said: "Mkhitaryan played the last match and probably will play the next one".

"So let's say in the summer we have three targets - a defender, a midfielder and an attacking player - if, in the winter, you do one of the three, then in the summer you are going to do three minus one".

"If it happens, happens, if it doesn't happen then it doesn't happen but I like my squad, I like my players, the more time I spend with them this week was also good to be sure of that". "So tomorrow training, Sunday selected and Monday play".
