Manchester City refuse to meet £65million Aubameyang asking price 

Manchester City were thought to be close to sealing a deal for Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, but reports suggest that Pep Guardiola will refuse to meet the clubs £65million asking price.

Rumours went crazy two weeks ago as it was claimed that Manchester City were edging closer to securing a deal for the 27-year old, with a fee of £58million widely speculated to be enough to take Aubameyang to the Etihad stadium.

However, rumours have quietened since then, and it has since been claimed that Dortmund are holding out for for a staggering £65million, which would become a British transfer record, eclipsing the £59.7million Manchester United payed for Angel Di Maria.

Despite the relatively small gap in valuations, neither club seems willing to budge, meaning that Manchester City could give up on their hopes of signing the striker who scored 36 goals in 45 appearances for the Bundesliga club last season.

Dortmund have already lost Ilkay Gundogan to Manchester City, as well as Mats Hummels to Bayern Munich.
