Manchester United have joined in the quest to sign Barcelona star player, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Chelsea have still not made any concrete progress in the efforts to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, despite having agreed personal terms long time ago, with a two-year deal plus an option for a third on the table.
The Blues have maintained continuous dialogue with Barcelona, and while they have offered £15m plus Marcos Alonso, Barca are holding out for £20m plus add-ons and minus Marcos Alonso, as per the Evening Standard and Diario Sport.
It is still entirely possible that the two teams will reach a compromise over the price, with Thomas Tuchel pushing for a reunion with his former striker at Borussia Dortmund.
However, Chelsea’s pursuit could get a bit complicated, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Manchester United have joined the race. United want to reinforce their attacking line, and have made a “fresh approach” for the 33-year-old’s services.
For their part, Barcelona still need to strike a deal to help them get out of their financial quandary.
While Chelsea remain in the driver’s seat, the longer the delay, the easier it will be for other teams to enter the conversation (as it happens in just about any transfer deal).
