Manchester United compete with Chelsea in Aubameyang case
In immediate need of strengthening after their chaotic start to the season, Manchester United have been active on several tracks in recent hours. One of them would lead to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, relegated to the Barça bench after the arrival of Robert Lewandowski.
Duel in sight between the Blues and the Red Devils in the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang file? On the bench at FC Barcelona since the arrival of Robert Lewandowski, the Gabonese striker would greatly appeal to the two English cadors, Chelsea and Manchester United.
Followed by Chelsea for several days, the player would have seen Manchester United enter the dance very recently, according to the journalist Gerard Romero. The latter specifies that the player remains calm and silent in the face of these rumors and that Xavi would ideally like to keep him.
Manchester must recruit
With a small goal scored for six conceded and a Premier League red lantern place, Manchester United is on the verge of crisis, plagued by the very uncertain situation of Cristiano Ronaldo. The atmosphere is tense, the sports results are not good. Manchester United is doing badly and a crisis meeting has even been organized at the club to claim recruits according to the English press.
After De Jong’s refusal, the probable failure in the Rabiot file, deemed too greedy, and the multiple departure requests from Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils have somewhat lost control over this transfer window. They still have a little less than two weeks to raise the bar and strengthen the workforce.
FC Barcelona needs cash
Even if the sale of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang does not seem to be a priority for Xave, the truth of the economic situation of the club seems quite different. FC Barcelona has sold some of its assets to be able to recruit as it pleases this summer, but the situation remains tense.
A week after the resumption of La Liga, Jules Koundé is still not on the list, time is running out. The sale of a prized element like Aubameyang would allow Barca to fill their coffers. It remains to be seen if an agreement will be reached between the Catalan club and one of the two English clubs, and if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be tempted by a great return to the Premier League, after six months on the side of Catalonia, where he is is restarted.
