Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Aubameyang and Alvaro Morata after Arnautovic deal collapsed.
Alvaro Morata, a former Chelsea striker, has apparently been “given the chance” to join Manchester United.
Morata has reportedly been made available to Erik ten Hag’s team, who are in need of offensive reinforcements, according to ESPN. Marko Arnautovic, 33, had lately been connected to the club, however the Manchester Evening News reported that the club has dropped its interest in the player in part owing to fan backlash.
Now that the 29-year-old striker only has a year left on his Atletico Madrid contract, it appears that United has moved on to other matters as they try to arrange a transaction.
In 48 games in all competitions during his most recent season with the Italian club, Morata, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus, scored 12 goals and provided nine assists.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a former captain of Arsenal, has reportedly been offered to United, but the club will have to compete with a Premier League competitor to sign him.
Chelsea and United are both thought to have received an offer from Barcelona for Aubameyang this transfer window, since Thomas Tuchel’s team is similarly in need of a striker. The London club is reportedly already trying to reach an agreement with Frenkie de Jong, and it now appears that they are going to challenge United for another signing as well.
Although the De Jong negotiations have been difficult and drawn out, a deal for Aubameyang may go more smoothly, especially given that the Spanish team has already added a striker to their roster this transfer window in the form of Robert Lewandowski. The former Arsenal player only joined Barcelona in January, but has already made an impact with 11 goals in 17 outings for the Catalan squad.
