Man City ready to swoop on Man United’s top target

Pep Guardiola has urged new club Manchester City to make a big-money move for Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, which would wreck Manchester United’s transfer plans, according to Le10 Sport, translated to English by The Daily Star.

The Catalan coach is set to take the reigns at the Etihad Stadium ahead of next season and is expected to overhaul the club’s playing personnel considerably.

As such, City look likely to splash the cash on a host of top players this summer and Aubameyang is apparently in the silverware-chasing side.

United are said to have one eye on the Gabon international also, who has been in breathtaking form for the Bundesliga giants this season.

A transfer tug-of-war could be set to ensue as a result, with the cross-city rivals both wanting the African forward to lead their strike forces next season.

Aubameyang has scored 23 Bundesliga goals this season so far.
