The real reason why Arsenal plans to sell its player Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the summer break has been determined.
Report informs that this is because the 30-year-old midfielder of the Armenian team does not obey the terms of the contract. Although the London club supports Mkhitaryan’s decision to not to participate in UEFA Europa League final match in Baku presenting it as a choice of the footballer himself and his family, the reality is different.
Despite the fact that Azerbaijan and UEFA have guaranteed the highest level of security, the Armenian footballer refused to come to the match which is of great importance for Arsenal, causing serious dissatisfaction at the club. The team management evaluated Mkhitaryan's provocative behavior as a failure to comply with the terms of the contract.
True, Arsenal officials have said that they respect Mkhitaryan’s decision at the moment in order not to harm the atmosphere in the camp. However, after the final, the club will take the measure and transfer the Armenian player who does not comply with the terms of contract.
In addition, sports lawyers will soon meet in London to discuss Mkhitaryan's issue. The English club will be advised not to accept the players involved in political scandals. Arsenal has exchanged Alexis Sanchez to Mkhitaryan who played for Manchester United in January 2018. The agreement with the Armenian footballer is valid until the summer of 2021.
England's Arsenal and Chelsea will play their last match on May 29 at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
