PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been the focus of one of the most expensive transfers in history, according to a list compiled by Goal.com.
After making a name for himself at Shakhtar Donetsk, Mkhitaryan stepped up his transformation into a world-class attacking midfielder at Borussia Dortmund, the source says.
“Indeed, it was his sensational performances at Signal Iduna Park that convinced Jose Mourinho to sign him in the summer of 2016 for €42m,” the article says, reminding that the Armenia international was sent to Arsenal in exchange for Alexis Sanchez in January 2018.
Leading the list of the 100 most costly transfers in football history are Neymar (€222m), Philippe Coutinho (€120m), Ousmane Dembele (€105m), Paul Pogba (€105m), Gareth Bale (€100.8m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (€100m).
