Man Utd eyeing Chelsea ace and Aubameyang bid

Man Utd ready to rival Chelsea for Aubameyang, eyeing move for Stamford Bridge attacker as well

The Red Devils are frantically searching for signings in the final few weeks of the summer transfer window and are looking at a striker and a winger.

Manchester United's frantic attempts to sign players in the final few weeks of the summer transfer window ramble on.

After back-to-back defeats in their opening two games of the new Premier League season, the need for reinforcement has been made clear to everyone watching. While a midfielder has long been on their list of targets, the latest two names being linked with Old Trafford are attackers.

Given the whole Cristiano Ronaldo debacle and the Red Devils failed pursuit of Ajax sensation Anthony, it comes as little surprise that they are after a striker and a winger. However, they will face stiff competition.

The first name on their radar is none other than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the former captain of bitter rivals Arsenal. This report comes courtesy of well-known Catalan journalist Gerard Romero who claims that the Premier League giants are ready to rival Chelsea in the race to land the Gabonese ace.

Given the arrival of Robert Lewandowski at the Camp Nou, Aubameyang might find playing time hard to come by in Catalonia. Chelsea look to take advantage of this situation as they are currently without a recognized no.9, but Manchester United could complicate things for the London giants.

Speaking of the Blues, Manchester United's other target is none other than a Stamford Bridge player. That attacker is Christian Pulisic, the USMNT talent who has fallen down the pecking order under Tuchel's reign.

The 23-year-old failed to start in his club's opening two games – the 1-0 win over Everton and 2-2 draw against Tottenham – and is thus searching for regular playing time. According to the Athletic, Ten Hag's side are exploring a loan deal for the former Dortmund man in what could be an interesting offer.

Will Chelsea allow him to move to the Theatre of Dreams and strengthen a direct rival? Only time will tell, but it should be noted that PSV's Cody Gakpo is another option for the Red Devils, which means Pulisic isn't guaranteed an Old Trafford switch.
