Borussia Dortmund director Joachim Watzke will only listen to offers that are between £78m and £95m for prolific striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to British news site metro.co.uk. Manchester United and Mourinho have been heavily linked with the player.
Watzke spoke on the topic recently, stating “If at any time an offer of €100m (£78m) or €120 million (£95m) for Aubameyang comes to us, then we will discuss.” Aubameyang is on fire this season for the second-placed Bundesliga club with 32 goals in 36 appearances and clubs are interested.
Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho, who is widely reported to have a gentleman’s agreement with United to be the next coach, is dead set on signing the French-born Gabonese star, and many observers agree that the Red Devils are situated best financially to acquire him over the summer. The 26 year-old is not a player the German side wants to lose, but £95m should make it a bit less painful.
