Arsenal have named the price for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang after Manchester United showed an interest in the Striker, according to the reports.
The Red Devils are in a need of a Striker with Romelu Lukaku ‘almost’ set to join Inter Milan in the next few weeks, given the Serie A side meets our financial demands.
The ‘probable’ departure of Romelu Lukaku would mean that the Red Devils would only have Marcus Rashford in their ranks who hasn’t had a great time as a center-forward in the last campaign.
It’s being reported that we made contact with Auba’s entourage whilst the Gabonese Striker was on holiday and the Gunners man said ‘yes’ to the proposal of starting as a Manchester United player.
Now, if these latest reports are to believed, the Gunners are open to selling their only world-class player, as long as we meet their demand of £56m for the Striker.
@Arsenal demanding £56m for #aubameyang after Manchester United showed interest in the Striker.
Auba willing to join but #woodward unwilling to cough up £56m for 30-year-old Striker.
Negotiations are expected to continue next month. #mufc #goonerfamily

The 30-year-old had a prolific year in the Premier League last season where he ended up sharing the golden boot, thanks to his 22 goals for Arsenal.
The absence of the Champions League at the Emirates means that the club only has £45m to spend in the summer and with Unai Emery looking to sign Wilfried Zaha, Arsenal are open to selling their first team stars to raise the required funds.
On the other hand, United have just completed a £50m deal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and are expected to churn up the same amount for Bruno Fernandes in the next few weeks.
Will Ed Woodward be willing to spend another £50m on a 30-year-old Striker is a question we still don’t have an answer to. Hopefully, we will find that out soon enough!
