Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed a move to Manchester United, two Chelsea defenders are looking to leave and Arsenal target has said he wants to leave, all in the papers.


Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has verbally agreed to sign for Manchester United this summer, claims a report in Italy.

Earlier this month talkSPORT presenter Andy Goldstein claimed United were chasing the forward to replace Romelu Lukaku and now Tuttosport report the Gabon forward wants to move to Old Trafford.


Inter Milan are keen on Lukaku with new boss Antonio Conte desperate to add Lukaku and Edin Dzeko to his forward line.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is open to the sale of Lukaku, but is understood to be keen to make sure United can get 30-year-old Aubameyang in first.

Aubameyang scored 22 Prmeier League goals last season, earning him a joint Golden Boot win and is rated in the £70million bracket.
