Departing Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan had a cheeky little message as he celebrated his 29th birthday with soon-to-be former teammate Paul Pogba.
The Armenian posed with the French midfielder and super agent Mino Raiola who helped him to a bumper deal at Arsenal in front of a big cake.
He also left the message ‘What am I getting for my birthday??’
The former Borussa Dortmund midfielder is all set to tie up his long awaited swap deal to the Gunners today – with Alexis Sanchez going in the other direction.
Sanchez will bank a huge pay rise with wages of at least £400,000 per week, while Mkhitaryan is equally set to become Arsenal’s highest earner.
Both deals are expected to go through today and both players are eligible to represent their new clubs in European competitions.
Henrik Mkhitaryan will have the chance to defend the Europa league title he won last season with United as Gunners are now through to the knockout stage of the competition.
And Sanchez will be eligible to feature for United against Sevilla when the Champions League resumes in February.
