Manchester United linked with £50 million interest in Aubameyang

Manchester United are considering an ambitious £50m move to sign Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international’s future in north London is uncertain after talks over a new contract stalled, the forward set to have just a year remaining on his current deal this summer and keen for a return to Champions League football.

Arsenal‘s disappointing season so far is likely to see the club miss out on Europe’s elite for a fourth consecutive season, and the club’s board are considering selling Aubameyang this summer amid fears of a free transfer exit in the summer of 2021.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be monitoring developments ahead of a potential move, but according to the MailUnited are now considering making an approach as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are seeking additional firepower after allowing Romelu Lukaku to depart for Inter Milan last summer, the club having signed Odion Ighalo on a temporary loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua during the January transfer window.

The Nigerian international has enjoyed a positive start to his United career, though it remains unclear whether a permanent deal is being considered for the former Watford star.

Aubameyang’s contract situation has now alerted the Red Devils’ hierarchy, he report suggesting that a £50m deal could now be reached, a deal which would echo Robin van Persie’s move between the clubs eight years ago.

Like Van Persie, Aubameyang is a winner of the Premier League‘s Golden Boot and has starred since moving to English football from Borussia Dortmund two-and-a-half year ago, scoring 49 goals in just 74 league appearances.
