Man Utd Transfer News: Solksjaer to plot surprise move for Arsenal Star. Reports suggest that United plan to lead their rebuild with the unexpected star.
talkSport presenter, Andy Goldstein has claimed that Manchester United are planning to launch a huge bid for Arsenal Striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Goldstein says that he has an insider who has a 75% success rate when it comes to Transfer news. He also revealed that it was this same insider who informed him of Anthony Martial’s move to United back in 2015.
“I’ve got someone on the inside, not at United by the way, someone on the inside who every so often would tell me transfer gossip,” He said.
“I would say he has a hit-ratio of about, quite high, 75-25. He’s told me quite a few that have happened. Not just at United but other clubs as well.
“He told me about Anthony Martial, which I tweeted I think two days before United even approached. It was one of them ‘how do you know?’, one of those.
“He has told me that United are interested in Aubameyang” Goldstein continued.
“He’s got two years left on his deal, he is 29 years old, he is the finished article. United did something similar with [Robin] van Persie, Romelu Lukaku isn’t doing it for Solskjaer, I’m led to believe.
“Do you want to know the number I’m being told? How much?
“I think it’s crazy money for a 29-year-old, two years left on his deal, scores goals, finished article.

Aubameyang moved from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal in a deal worth £56 million. This made him the most expensive African player at the time. He scored 31 goals in all competitions for Arsenal last season and shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané with 22 goals apiece.
