Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be cast aside by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to make room for Mesut Ozil, according to reports.

The Red Devils boss knows he must trim his squad if he is to sign Ozil due to the World Cup winner’s exorbitant wage demands.

The playmaker, whose Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season, has been asking for £300,000-a-week to agree a new deal at the Emirates.
