Name: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Club: Borussia Dortmund
Out of the Champions League and struggling to set the world alight, Manchester United are in desperate need of a new superstar who can lift the Old Trafford faithful. Angel Di Maria failed and, after a positive start, it seems that Memphis Depay has grinded to a halt. There is still faith in Anthony Martial but the Frenchman needs some support in an attack which has scored just 21 goals in 16 games.
A shock loss to Premier League new boys Bournemouth last weekend will put pressure on Ed Woodward and Louis van Gaal to deliver, but with the world’s best assets hard to get, it may be a long winter for the Red Devils.
A striker to help the burden is a must have and a realistic target will be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The 26-year-old, who is a reported target, is setting the Bundesliga alight with his performances for Borussia Dortmund, scoring 23 goals in all competitions this term. However, early indication shows Aubameyang wants to play in Spain, but you can never say never in football.
