Transfer Balls: Manchester United want Aubameyang to partner Bale, Ronaldo and Neymar
Transfer balls: Manchester United are all set to bid a £60m for Borussia Dortmund’s 26-year-old striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, says the Daily Mirror. The paper says United will “make him one of the biggest stars in the world”. He’ll be the biggest name in the Europa League – or at least its most expensive player (unless United buy Neymar, Bale etc.).
Man United are desperate to sign a star turn. Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward hopes to lob loadsa cash at Dortmund and that they’ll bite. United will also offer Aubameyang £200,000-a-week to kiss the badge and “promise to make him a global superstar”.
How? By having him travel the world in the summer in the hope that the Chinese go potty for him?
So flaky are the facts behind the story of Aubameyang to United that the Express can’t agree with itself what United will pay for the player:
But let’s not blame the Press for this nonsense – every day the United PR department links the club with a big name player. Don’t worry, fans, it will all be ok. The only problem the manager will have next season is picking a front two from Ronaldo, Neymar, Bale, Aubameyang, Bale, Pogba and Kane.
