Manchester United fans enjoying a midweek without football stress in the Transfer Tavern are getting excited after reports indicated they’ve joint the hunt for a stellar forward.
The Mirror states the Red Devils have joined the race for Borussia Dortmund’s £42m-rated forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has a sensational record this season of 22 goals in 18 games.
Louis Van Gaal is looking for attacking additions in January to bolster his side’s chances of winning the Premier League crown, with the Red Devils criticised for their attacking play throughout the campaign so far.
However, United face hefty competition for the signature of the Gabon international as Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea are also keen on the player’s services.
The 26-year-old is rated as one of the finest forwards in world football and would be a stellar addition to any side, whilst the fact he is eligible to play Champions League football in the knock-out stages of the competition increases his attractiveness.
United fans in the bar believe Aubameyang is exactly what their side is missing and have urged Van Gaal to do whatever it takes to land the in-form forward.
