This year the Manchester United side brought the attacking midfielder from the German side with a huge transfer fee and tough under the special one the midfielder only starts one game for them in this season so far.
Last year the attacking midfielder has played a key and important role for his former side at the German league and he was won the Bundesliga's Players' Player of the Year last Campaign.
The 27 year old said:
"I had three very successful years in Germany with Borussia Dortmund, but I had the opportunity to move to one of the biggest clubs in the highest-profile league in the world,"
"I was always taught by my father to challenge myself and to continue to evolve in my career and I saw the move to Manchester United as an opportunity to grow as a player and as a person.
"It was definitely not the salary that made me join Manchester United, I went for football reasons – for the history of the club, the league, the fans and the coach because he is one of the best in the world."
Though he is not getting that much of playing time at the Manchester United but still he is happy, and under the Portuguese(Jose Mourinho) he just played 29 minutes for them in their last two matches.
He thinks that he can prevail upon Mourinho though the coach thinks that he need to do something more to be a part of the starting lineup.
The Armenian international said that:
"There is not much sun, but I didn't move to Manchester to go to the beach,"
"It has been relatively simple to adapt to the city because people are so friendly to me.
"It's a dynamic city and one I like to live in. I'm only missing playing time, but it will come for sure. I keep working hard and this will pay off."
