English Premier League side, Manchester United have reportedly given a nod to signing of Barcelona striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Spanish club is said to have offered to allow the Gabon international to leave the club before the ongoing transfer window closes despite spending just a few months after his signing from Arsenal.
The La Liga giants are in dire need to raise enough money to help their current financial situation, hence are open to cutting the striker loose.
Manchester United on the other hand is in search of a new forward this summer as Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford is not certain any longer.
The Portugal international is hoping to leave for a Champions League team as he looks to finish his career at the very top.
Naija News learnt that Barcelona manager, Xavi is ready to bid the Gabonese star farewell following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski.
Express, however, highlighted that the Red Devils may have to battle Chelsea who are said to be interested in signing the former Arsenal captain.
Naija News understands that Aubameyang scored 11 goals in 17 league appearances for Barca last season.
