ROME – Mkhitaryan will play Roma again next year. The Armenian footballer was playing on loan from Arsenal but from next season he will be a full-fledged Giallorossi player.
In fact, Mkhitaryan has terminated his contract with Arsenal and has agreed with Roma to play in the capital again next year. In this transfer market operation, the mediation of the agent of the player Mino Raiola was decisive.
Roma has formalized the agreement with Mkhitaryan with the following press note published on its website.
AS Roma are pleased to announce that they have extended the duration of Henrikh Mkhitaryan's loan until the end of the current season and have reached a preliminary agreement for the player's stay also for 2020-21.
“I am very pleased with the prospect of being able to stay another year here, because there are still goals that I have not achieved and I want to do it. I can't wait to do it, "said the Armenian footballer.
Mkhitaryan joined Roma in the summer of 2019 and has so far racked up 19 appearances with 6 goals and 4 assists.
"We are happy that Mkhitaryan has decided to stay with us and help us grow our project," said CEO Guido Fienga. “Roma's goals don't change and we want to have in our club who, like Miky, always shows commitment, professionalism and sacrifice, honoring our colors and our fans. I wish Micky to stay at Roma for a long time and I thank him for giving us a new wolf cub. "
Henrikh started in both games played by Roma since the resumption of the championship after the interruption due to the Covid-19 emergency. The Giallorossi still have 10 Serie A matches left to play and the Europa League final tournament scheduled for August.
