Last summer, Manchester United signed a world class striker in the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Swedish star has been sensational this season.
The Red Devils want to keep Zlatan at Old Trafford for two more years (via The Sun) but they must also look to sign a top quality long term replacement for the former Barca center forward.
United and other top clubs have been interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for quite some time. Under the management of Louis van Gaal, United were linked with the Gabon star (via Daily Mail).
Now, Mourinho has got the chance to finally sign the prolific goalscorer for Man Utd with a big offer. Aubameyang has all the qualities to replace Zlatan.
BvB’s chief executive, Hans-Joachim Watzke has claimed that the club would consider selling the 27-year-old striker if the price tag of 80 million euros (£68.5million) is met (The Sun).
“With an €80m offer, I would be thinking about Rauball and Zorc. If we had one (an offer), we would have to get together with Pierre-Emerick”
Antoine Griezmann heavily praised Aubameyang last month and claimed that he is definitely a “world class” striker (Goal).
The African star is currently the leading scorer in the Bundesliga with 16 goals in 15 games. Overall, the former Monaco forward has featured in 22 games for the German side this season, scored 20 goals and also provided 4 assists.
