United step up interest in Aubameyang

Transfer rumours are beginning to come thick and fast with the season drawing to a close and the latest rumour coming out of United is that the club have registered solid interest in Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The £70million rated striker has been in fine form for Dortmund this year scoring 34 goals in 41 games and is being courted by other European giants such as Chelsea and Real Madrid.

It’s no secret United have been scouting Aubameyang as we reported back in December that United were preparing a January bid to bring him to Old Trafford.

Whether Aubameyang will be allowed to leave Dortmund or not remains to be seen considering Ilkay Gundogan is set to join Manchester City and Mats Hummels’ future unclear.

If Aubameyang does leave, it is understood his most likely destination would be Real Madrid despite him declaring an interest in the Premier League.

When asked about playing for Real Madrid he had this to say:

“Real Madrid? There is no agreement but I promised my grandfather I would play there one day.

“Why wouldn’t I want to discover new things? As I’ve said several times, I’d like to play in Spain and have good weather for once in my life!’”

Personally I would love to see Aubameyang playing for United. He is a prolific goal scorer and we could do with that in our attack. We cannot just rely on our youth players to provide the goals.

Kroos, Sanches, Mahrez and Kante linked with us today. I would pinch myself if we got even 2 of these players. I have heard rumours that Reus is annoyed that… Read more »
