Manchester United set to make Aubameyang their key transfer target

Manchester United fans want Aubameyang in January window

Manchester United are edging closer to make Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their key summer target and the sources have revealed that they have to pay up to £70million to bring him to Old Trafford next season.

The Gabon International has been in sublime form this season scoring 36 goals in 42 appearances while the inside sources have revealed that he will remain the key transfer target for Jose Mourinho who is speculated to be next manager if Louis Van Gaal finishes outside the top-four.

According to Sun, The Red Devils are disposed to pay £70 million which means that price could cross the barrier of British transfer record £59.7 million, United paid to Real Madrid for Angel Di Maria in 2014.

The Dortmund striker has mooted his desire to play for Spanish Giants Real Madrid next season but a monster £200,000-a-week contract from the Manchester side might see him playing in Red shirt soon.

The Red Devils are keen to put the disappointing Premier League season beyond them and look forward to strengthen the key areas in order to compete in all fronts next season. Even if Manchester United fail to finish inside the top four in the league table, they still get the chance to play Champions League football if they win the FA Cup on 21st May at Wembley.

However, if the deal goes wrong United are considering to lure French International Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in-order to overhaul their squad next season.
