The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting fairly frustrated at their current form, and talk has already turned towards next season and which players can come in to revive the once great football club.
Our landlord is catching up with the tabloids and has spotted some promising news in the Daily Mail, concerning a certain talent from the Bundesliga.
The article states that the United hierarchy have already prepared a £70 million bid for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ready for a summer pursuit.
The Gabonese 26-year-old has netted an impressive 20 league goals this season, and has attracted the attention of some of Europe’s top clubs including Arsenal and Real Madrid, which could throw a spanner in the works of a United bid given the other suitors’ Champions League chances for next season.
One United fan here in the Transfer Tavern thinks that £70 million is a lot of money, but does concede that it is a risk worth taking, given the club’s habit of not scoring enough goals during this season.
United fans… Would you welcome Aubamayeng? How good is he? Would he help win you the Premier League? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
