Mkhitaryan: the truth about Liverpool and ownership
The offer made from the Reds was 23 million £. Shakhtar Donetsk, the team in which Henrik is playing since 2010 accepted the offer, so that the player was ready to take a flight for the medical.
Then the sensational development. He didn’t take the flight, he is not in Liverpool. Why?
The ownership of the player, 25 goals scored the last season in Ukraine, is not only of Shakhtar Donetsk. 50 % is owned by Shakhtar, 25 % by Metallurg Donetsk and the other 25 % by Pyunik Yerevan, that last teams of Mkhitaryan.
Now Mkhitaryan and his entourage has only one day to solve the situation: Shakhtar’s directore declared that the player will have to join the squad on June 23rd. So the time is running out for Liverpool.
