Update #2: A new picture of Manchester United's locker room made ahead of their pre-season friendly against Vålerenga pretty much confirms that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has no boot contract as he has both the Nike Mercurial Superfly V and Adidas Ace Purecontrol 17+ boots.

However, he was not spotted wearing the Adidas Ace Purecontrol football boots yet and wore the Nike Mercurial Superfly V boots in the friendly, but it nevertheless seems likely that he already gave Adidas' laceless boots a try in training.
