Manchester United have signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund, the Premier League giants announced on Wednesday.
Mkhitaryan, 27, has penned a four-year deal with United with the option to extend the contract for a further year, the club announced in a statement.
'I am very proud to join Manchester United, this move is a dream come true for me,' Mkhitaryan told United's website after joining for a fee worth a reported £26 million ($34 million, 30 million euros).
'I am excited to play for a club with such an illustrious history and hope to be part of it for a long time,' the Armenia playmaker added.
'I am thankful for the trust the club and Jose Mourinho have put in me.
'Finally, I believe playing for such a great club honours my father's memory, and the inspiration and drive he gave to me when I was young.'
Mkhitaryan, whose father Hamlet was also a footballer, scored 41 goals in 140 appearances for Dortmund after joining them from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013.
He is Armenia's most successful player and has scored a record 19 goals in 59 appearances for his country.
Mkhitaryan is United's third pre-season signing and follows both Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly and star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Old Trafford.
'Henrikh is a very talented footballer who has been in such prolific form for both his club and his country,' said United manager Mourinho.
