To win the Premier league title, you need a striker who can score 20 plus goals per season in the league alone. This type of striker Manchester United do not have hence they are struggling in the league and have been struggling for sometime now. However, it appears the club’s management know this for a fact and are keen to bring in a striker who is able to score 30+ goals in all competition per season.
Anthony Martial will come good but right now, United need another striker who the young Frenchman can learn from especially as Rooney doesn’t seem to know where the net is any more. To this end, Manchester United are said to be interested in signing Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. According to a report by Daily Mail, the Red devils have been speaking to Dortmund in an attempt to bring Aubameyang to Old Trafford.
The Gabonese has been one of the best strikers in Europe this season. He has at of the time of writing this article scored a total of 38 goals in 42 starts and created seven assists.
Dortmund are certainly not going to want to sell him but every player has a price and according to daily Mail, United know this and will be tempting Dortmund with an offer of £70 million for the attacker who has also been linked with a move to PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barca.
What could work against Manchester United is the fact that the Red devils are most likely not going to be playing in the Champions League next season and Dortmund, after a year absence, are back in it.
