Mkhitaryan started the season in blistering form, racking up five assists in the opening four Premier League games.

Signs of the problems he endured last season started creeping back when he was left out of the United team completely by Jose Mourinho in their game against Newcastle United at Old Trafford in November.

The Armenian has a contract until 2020 with Manchester United, but Mourinho is expected to entertain offers for him in January.

The out-of-favour attacker has looked a shadow of the man that started the season in red-hot form and patience could soon run out for Mourinho if the Armenian cannot rediscover that early-season form. He has been linked with a move back to Borussia Dortmund, apart from Inter.

Manchester United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has told Inter Milan to press ahead with a move for him.

"The Championship is now high quality teams with lots of players that could be playing in the Premier League easily". Led by the Brazilian legend Ronaldo, the global panel of players, coaches, broadcasters, reporters, correspondents and editors is fronted by 27 current and former professionals who have won a combined total of 698 caps. Mourinho, one of the most decorated manager's in the history of football is known for his win-at-all-odds approach, much of which includes a largely defensive and counter-attacking system which has frozen out several extremely talented and skillful offensive players in the past such as Juan Mata, Kevin De Bruyne and Kaka.

Mourinho will hope the extra travel doesn't have a detrimental effect on his players' performance, with United standing a strong chance of defending their Carabao Cup title. Mkhitaryan's fall from grace can be traced to the injury of fellow midfielder, Paul Pogba. With the injury to the French midfielder, the pressure of playmaking and creating fell exclusively on the shoulders of the Armenian.

Though, Mkhitaryan eventually hit some kind of form and was pivotal in the clubs Europa League glory.
