Manchester United open talks with Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Manchester United are desperately trying to sign a world class striker this summer and the Old Trafford outfit have already opened talks with the Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

According to reports from France, Manchester United have already opened talks with the player’s agent over a summer move.

Le10Sport have claimed that negotiations are well underway and Manchester United officials held productive talks with the player’s agent a few weeks ago.

Aubameyang has been in red hot form this season and the Gabon international has already bagged 30 goals in 31 appearances this season with the German outfit. It is understood that Aubameyang is keen to join a European heavyweight this summer and Manchester United are desperate to land him.

Although the Red Devils might not be in the Champions League next season, they could make it worth his while with a big money offer.

Borussia Dortmund had previously said they do not want to sell their star player but the player’s suitors understand that the Germans might be willing to do a deal on their own terms during the summer window.

Manchester United would need to offer around £60 million to land the goal machine from Dortmund this summer.
