Premier League sides look to snare popular goal machine.
Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are said to be weighing up separate moves for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, according to Football Direct News.
Sources close to the Old Trafford club has hinted that the Red Devils have placed the 24-year-old on their radar and may look to make a bid for him before Chelsea have a chance to make one of their own.
United’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League could prove to be a decisive factor for the player if his club decides to do business, but directors are said to have reserved a large sum of money for squad strengthening and can rival or beat any Chelsea bid.
The Gabon international still has four years remaining on his current deal with the Bundesliga side, though, having only joined the club last summer, so United had better be ready to stump up some serious cash to prize him away.
United have had injury problems with both Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie this season and are keen on signing new strikers to help them climb back into the Champions League.
