Manchester United; Mourinho calls Bundesliga superstar to offer him a five-year deal at Old Trafford
What looked like a done deal is still not signed sealed and delivered and now reports in today’s Mirror suggest that Manchester United are back in the race for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The 27-year-old has been talking to French giants Paris Saint-Germain and a deal looked to be in the offering but it’s understood that personal terms are yet to be agreed. The journal states that Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli understands that United boss Jose Mourinho has personally spoken to the player over a proposed five-year deal at Old Trafford as he looks to bolster his attacking options this summer.
With Wayne Rooney edging ever closer to the exit and Zlatan Ibrahimovic recovering from a serious knee injury, Mourinho wants the Gabon international to lead the line next term along with another big name signing.
With Antoine Griezmann now staying put at Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata is thought to be the Portuguese tactician’s primary choice to link up with Aubameyang and form one of Europe’s most potent attacking line-ups.
