Milan consider Joao Mario-Henrikh Mkhitaryan swap deal

According to reports, Italian side Inter Milan will consider including Joao Mario in a swap deal with Manchester United's midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Juan Mata might be offered by Mourinho to Inter Milan as a makeweight to secure the transfer of Mario. However, according to reports from Italy,  24-year-old might be available if they offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan instead. It is reported that the midfielder is keen to join Manchester United in the January transfer window. Mario has made 43 appearances for Inter since his move from Sporting last year but the 24-year-old has dropped down the pecking order in Luciano Spalletti’s squad at the San Siro this season.

While the Portugal international is tied into a contract until the summer of 2021, it’s understood he’s pushing for a move away from Inter in the new year in search of first-team opportunities.
