If you search the Manchester United grapevine of transfer rumours right now, what you’ll find as the biggest story is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s potential switch to Old Trafford.
As we all know by now, the Gabon international is one of the most lethal strikers in all of Europe and The Telegraph claim United are ready to enter a big money battle with both Chelsea and Arsenal for his signature.
While you’d imagine that a deal would be virtually impossible in January with the former Saint-Etienne man vital to Thomas Tuchel’s sides’ fortunes this term, the reports claim Louis van Gaal is keen on testing the German giants’ resolve as early as the New Year.
And lets be honest, United are desperately in need of another striker up top with Wayne Rooney no longer being able to be relied upon to score a haul of 20 and Anthony Martial still learning with the Frenchman often budged out wide nowadays.
In a tight Premier League this term, United like a few others are still there or thereabouts but if they had somebody like Jamie Vardy, scoring at a rate of each weekend, this would give the Red Devils a critical edge on their rivals.
Aubameyang’s signing is an ambitious one but with his price tag set at £42 million, we’ve seen in recent times that big fees don’t scare United one jot.
With this proposed transfer in mind, how would Aubameyang fit into United’s current XI. Here’s how they might look with the Gabonese star included.
