Even before we get to the peak of the January transfer market, the media wave is already awash with speculations and postulations at Old Trafford. This follows from the social media activity of Manchester United player Matteo Darmian. This is amidst reports claiming the player is to be in England for medical this week – initially thought to be with Arsenal but now safe to assume it is with Manchester United.
The media wave was heated in London that Gabon international and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang is on the radar of Arsenal but latest report just revealed that the player could end up lacing his boots for Manchester United.
Aubameyang was conspicuously absent from his club’s training session yesterday and it was thought to be as a result of a transfer going on for him. However, the officials of Signa Iduna Park outfit claimed it was for personal reasons that he was absent.
A lot of pundits have postulated that he will end up at the Theatre of dreams after he was followed by Matteo Darmian on instagram. This has been a very big pointer to the fact that they will soon be team mates.
United might just take advantage of their relationship with Dormund and secure a loan for the prolific attacker. Despite being converted from a winger to a striker, Aubameyang is currently the most in-form striker in the world – he has scored 18 goals in 17 Bundesliga matches and will be worth the headache for United.
The Red Devils have struggled in attack this season and Van Gaal is looking for assured options up front.
