Manchester United to rival Chelsea for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

Manchester United to rival Chelsea for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

Manchester United are reportedly set to enter the race to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

Following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, Aubameyang has fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou, with the Gabon international failing to start either of Barcelona’s two league matches this term.

Chelsea appeared to be front of the queue to sign the forward, although a recent report suggested that the two clubs are still yet to agree a deal.

However, according to football writer Nathan Gissing, the Blues could face competition from United, who are interested in signing the 33-year-old.

The Red Devils are looking to bolster their attacking options before the transfer window closes and have identified Aubameyang as a potential target.

With Chelsea and Barcelona currently failing to agree as to whether Marcos Alonso should be included in a deal for Aubameyang, there could be a chance for United to negotiate a transfer with the Catalan giants.

The former Arsenal striker, who has three years left on his current contract, has scored 13 goals in 24 appearances for Barcelona.
