Henrikh Mkhitaryan has decided to leave AS Roma and will join Inter on a free transfer in the coming days, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport the Armenian midfielder was offered a new deal by the Giallorossi and given 48 hours to give them an answer about his future.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal midfielder has communicated to the UEFA Europa Conference League champions that he will not be accepting their contract offer. His current deal expires on June 30.

The Armenian’s aim was to have a two-year contract worth around €5 million, a contract that Roma had come very close to, offering €4.2 million.

That leaves the 33-year-old ready to accept the contract that Inter offered and move to the Nerazzurri on a free transfer. It is believed that the opportunity to play in the Champions League next season was a big factor in his choice.
