Henrikh Mkhitaryan bid 'a tearful farewell' to his Manchester United team-mates as he left their Carrington training base earlier this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho claimed there was ‘nothing new’ to report at a 12.45pm press conference on Friday other than to say that Mkhitaryan had once again been left out of United’s match-day squad to face Burnley.

But around an hour later, the Armenian reportedly left for the final time.
