Manchester United have reportedly joined the race to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Jose Mourinho is in the hunt for superstars and is expected to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico.
L’Equipe claim that United have stepped in to rival PSG for Aubameyang’s signature – with Manchester City also suitors, as revealed by SunSport.
But even with United’s financial clout, they will not be able to manage the £43million-a-year deal that they say is on the table from Tianjin Quanjian.
The Chinese club have also held talks with Chelsea ace Diego Costa but are believed to approached Aubameyang’s advisors through boss Fabio Cannavaro over a move this summer.
And this is said to have sparked United chiefs into action, with intermediaries requesting a sit-down with the Gabon striker.
Aubameyang is thought to have already met with PSG director of football Patrick Kluivert.
But the French giants were said to need a colossal £59million to bring him to the French capital.
As revealed by SunSport, Man City will go all-out to land Aubameyang if Sergio Aguero leaves.
Aubameyang, 27, is City’s third choice as they are resigned to losing out on Lionel Messi and Manchester United-bound Antoine Griezmann.
Contact has been made with Aubameyang’s representatives after he signalled his willingness to leave Dortmund.
Real Madrid were the front-runners after the player confirmed the European champions were his ‘dream’ destination.
He said: “If I want to go to the next level, I need to leave in summer.
“Real Madrid is still a dream, but there has been too much noise.”
