The Manchester United supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern have not had too much to shout about this season in the way of activities on the pitch, but some promising news regarding summer arrivals has started to surface in recent weeks.
The landlord is tidying out a cellar which is full of empty barrels following the weekends antics, when he spots an article in Monday’s Independent that suggest United will make a £60 million move for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, regardless of who is in charge.
The 26-year-old is wanted by United to improve a goal-shy team and the Gabon international has netted 31 goals in 34 appearances for Borussia Dortmund so far this season.
One United fan is eagerly awaiting tonight’s game with Shrewsbury in the FA Cup and he has his seat in front of the big screen ready for the contest.
He believes that Aubameyang would be a fantastic signing for United, and is pleased that the club will try and sign him whoever is in charge.
United fans… What do you know about Aubameyang? Would he do a job for United?
