Manchester United are ready to compete with Chelsea in the pursuit of former Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabon star left the Gunners for Barcelona on a free transfer in February, but he could make an instant return to the Premier League.

Aubameyang was the first-choice striker for the Spanish giants earlier this year, but summer signing Robert Lewandowski has taken his spot.

This could urge the 33-year-old to move on from the club, and according to The Sun, both United and Chelsea are keen on signing him this summer.

The Red Devils were interested in landing his services at the beginning of the year, but their hesitance paved the way for Barcelona to land him.

They are now looking at pursuing him at Erik ten Hag's request, but a deal seems complicated due to their lack of Champions League football.

Aubameyang wants to desperately play in the elite European competition, and this probably gives the edge to Chelsea in the transfer race.
