Mkhitaryan to leave Man United? Every player has a price, says Mourinho

David De Gea's current Manchester United deal runs out next year though the club hold a one-year option

Jose Mourinho has suggested that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be sold if Manchester United receive the right price for his services.

But he is also willing to look at ditching some of his squad's biggest names - disgruntled that by the time United host Stoke tomorrow they could be 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Armenian shone for United last season, when given the opportunity, finishing the campaign with 11 goals.

The Armenia global has struggled to convince at Manchester United over the past 18 months or so.

And, speaking during a recent interview, Mourinho refused to rule out selling the former Dortmund man in the current transfer window.

'And I am not the kind of blind manager.

"Blind in the sense that this player is untouchable, this one can never be sold".

State releases school graduation rates
"As long as we can stay within the mid 90s, as far our graduation rate is concerned, I'm going to be pretty excited about it". IN requires students to pass state tests to graduate unless they can get a waiver by meeting other criteria.

Mourinho said, via Metro, "My approach to players is that every player has a price - doesn't matter who he is, the level, doesn't matter the prestige, the status, every player has a price, ' said the United boss".

While Mourinho did not name the Chilean forward, with whom his club has been strongly linked lately, he did say that Old Trafford should capitalize on any "fantastic opportunity" that could one arise now.

'But I think the fact we have stayed strong, and we have been able to be a good part of the group over these years we have been here, is a true testament to all of us.

With the January transfer window open, the Reds boss is being asked about possible signings every week by the media, while fans always eagerly await any news during this period and in the summer months.

Thursday's session was United's last at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex following their arrival on Monday - three days after their FA Cup victory over Derby at Old Trafford. Then it is up to us to make the decision yes or no, is up to us to decide what we think is the right price.

"If it happens, happens, if it doesn't happen then it doesn't happen but I like my squad, I like my players, the more time I spend with them this week was also good to be sure of that".
