Rafaela Pimenta, the agent of Inter midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, has claimed that his client will be fit enough to return in time to line up against Manchester City in the Champions League final on June 10.
The former Manchester United and Arsenal regular suffered an injury and was withdrawn just before half-time of the second leg of the semi-final against AC Milan, later confirmed by Inter as a muscle injury to the quadriceps of the left thigh. As well as predicting that he will be able to return in time for the June final in Istanbul, Mkhitaryan’s agent also revealed that his player is happy with life at the San Siro and is confident that they will be able to reach an agreement on a contract extension. She told Calciomercato on Monday: “The Champions League final? I have had news of Henrikh in recent days, I think he will be able to recover and be on the field. He is integrating very well with the Nerazzurri, he likes Inter and the life in Italy. I hope to find an agreement for his extension. He is playing very well and that means he is doing very well at Inter.”
