Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, has had his three-month worldwide transfer ban suspended meaning that Arsenal should find it easier to move Henrikh Mkhitaryan on if they want.

Mino Raiola, probably the most powerful agent in the game, was initially banned from dealing until 9 August. The transfer window closes in England on 9 August but Raiola has now had his ban suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

As I said at the time, I was sure Raiola would be able to find a way around the ban to make a mockery of it, and I guess he has.

However, despite being linked with a move away, it seems like the Armenian’s future lies with Arsenal regardless of Raiola’s ban.

It was recently reported that Borussia Dortmund tried to lure him back to Germany but Tuttomercatoweb claim his future lies in north London.

It is expected, however, that the suspension will now free up Raiola to complete Paul Pogba’s move away from Manchester United.

Raiola also represents Matthijs de Ligt who is wanted by a number of clubs including Liverpool and Manchester United.
