Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang responds to Man Utd approach following Chelsea offer

According to reports, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to join Chelsea after a late approach from Manchester United.

Barcelona are looking to offload one of their top earners to improve their financial situation, and Aubameyang is one of the players who could leave Camp Nou before the transfer window closes.

Chelsea have held extensive talks to sign Aubameyang, as Thomas Tuchel is looking to replace Romelu Lukaku, who left earlier this summer.

United have also made a bid for Aubameyang, and reports suggest that the former Arsenal captain could be offered a longer contract than the one presented by Chelsea.

However, according to  Fabrizio Romano, Aubameyang has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, and the 33-year-old wants to play in the Champions League, which United cannot provide.

Chelsea and Barcelona have yet to reach an agreement on a fee for Aubameyang, with the Spanish club reportedly demanding close to €30 million (£25.3 million).

Chelsea has made a €20 million (£16.9 million) bid this week, with the option of including Marcos Alonso in the deal.

Alonso wants to join Barcelona this summer, and the Spanish club has identified him as their top target to strengthen their left flank.

Meanwhile, United are looking to sign a new striker before the transfer window closes.

Cristiano Ronaldo is still attempting to leave Old Trafford, and Ten Hag has refused to rule out signing a new striker before the end of the month.

“We plan with him [Ronaldo] and we stick to the plan and if there are good players available we will strike because we want to strengthen the squad always,” Ten Hag said after United’s 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.

“So we will be alert until the last second of the window.”

United are also interested in signing Ajax winger Antony, but the Dutch club will only accept a €100 million (£84.8 million) fee.
