Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Man United radar

Aubameyang linked with Old Trafford move

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to fight it out with Paris Saint-Germain for the signature of Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon international capped off a brilliant season for BvB after he secured the DFB-Pokal cup with his 40th goal of the campaign.

According to The Star, the Red Devils are lining up a potential attempt to sign the 27-year-old as Jose Mourinho looks to find the ideal successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Zlatan is ruled out for the best part of the year with a double knee damage, and it is highly doubtful whether he will be offered a new contract come the end of the month.

United have already had a £52m bid rejected for Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, and it is suggested that the European champions are demanding at least £78m for their asset.

As a result, the Mancunian giants are plotting an approach for Aubameyang, who could be available for a lesser sum of around £60m in the summer transfer window.

Aubameyang was rumoured to be on the cusp of a PSG deal last week before technical director Michael Zorc rubbished the claims stating that the player is still on a BvB contract.
