Man United ready to bring £65m-rated striker to Old Trafford – report
Manchester United want to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund this summer, say reports
Manchester United are ready to battle with Manchester City to bring Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.
The Red Devils are on the lookout for a number of new signings as they prepare for life under new manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Mourinho is already thought to have drawn up a shortlist of transfer targets as he gets ready for his first season in charge of the Red Devils.
The highly-rated Aubameyang has long been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.
And now, the Daily Star is reporting that United are prepared to go head-to-head with local rivals City to land the Gabon international.
The same report goes on to say that the forward is valued at £65m by Dortmund, a fee which would make him a British record signing.
United finished fifth in the Premier League table under Louis van Gaal last season.
