Man Utd Transfer News: Manchester United make a mammoth £62.1 million bid for Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Manchester United have made a huge bid for Arsenal’s sensational striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as they seek to bolster their frontline ahead of the next season.
As per the report by the FC Inter News, Aubameyang has been identified as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who is reportedly heading to Inter Milan this summer.
Aubameyang was earlier also linked with Manchester United, as the Gabonese striker is considering of leaving the North London club with several lucrative offers being proposed.
The 30-year-old striker has been lethal in front of the goal this season, and have won the golden boot in the Premier league 2018/19 campaign after scoring 22 goals in the league alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
Arsenal might be ready to sell the Gabonese International, as they want to significant additions in the tiny budget they received to do transfers. The Gunners are aiming to land Wilfreid Zaha from Crystal Palace, who have priced him above £80 million.
Thus, in order to fortify the squad, Unai Emery can think of sacrificing the star striker this summer, as their Premier league rivals are also in need of a striker after they are being compelled to sell Lukaku.
The Belgian International is determined to join Inter Milan this summer, and Antonio Conte views Lukaku as a perfect fit in his rebuild plans at the Italian Club.
Hence, the Nerazzurris are reportedly set to meet the demands of Manchester United, and the Italian side have already proposed their offer to the Red Devils with a response awaited.
Considering, Manchester United have allegedly made a bid for Aubameyang, it probably means that they are sort of ready to offload the 26-year-old star.
