In association football signings this week, on Wednesday English football club Manchester United F.C. announced the signing of Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from German club Borussia Dortmund; and on Thursday Spanish club Málaga CF announced signing striker Sandro Ramírez from FC Barcelona.

Mkhitaryan joins Manchester United[edit]
The Armenian captain signed a four-year contract with Manchester United, which was the third signing under José Mourinho this season. In his contract, Mhkitarayan has an option to continue with The Red Devils for the fifth season.

Having won the Armenian Footballer of the Year five times since his debut in 2007, Mkhitaryan was voted Bundesliga Player of the Season for 2015–2016. Making 140 appearances for Dortmund since joining in 2013, he has scored 41 goals. Last season he provided 32 assists in all competitions. Mkhitaryan is the nation's top scorer with nineteen goals so far.

After agreeing to the terms Henrikh Mkhitaryan said, "I am very proud to join Manchester United, this move is a dream come true for me."

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke explained the transfer saying, "Manchester had made us an exceptionally generous offer. If we had not taken them up on it, then the player would have gone a year later in 2017 on a free transfer."((de))

Mkhitaryan is the third signing of the club this season.

Sandro is Málaga's new striker[edit]
Málaga CF signed 20-year-old striker Sandro Ramírez on a three-year term from Barcelona.

Graduated from La Masia, Sandro has scored seven goals for the blaugranas in 32 appearances. He was promoted to the first team in 2014. Sandro has won seven trophies with Barça. In the Copa del Rey, Sandro has scored three goals in twenty appearances.

At international level, Sandro has played three U-21 (under-21) matches for Spain.
