Although Manchester United have a plethora of great striking talent, the media always seem to take great delight in linking us with the acquisition of yet another.

Today, one tabloid paper is running with the suggestion that United are in direct competition with Manchester City to acquire the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The 23 year-old striker, on the books of St Etienne, is establishing quite a reputation not least for his expensive taste in footwear with the Gabon international pictured wearing a pair of football boots, worth £2500, that were encrusted in crystals.

Rated in the £10 million bracket, quotes are produced that suggest our interest could be genuine with the player supposedly remarking,

“There have been contacts with the Manchester clubs.”

Shall we just wait and see on this one!
