Manchester United ready to move for world-class Rooney replacement

By Mark Peters IN Archive,General - 20:20 Dec 2nd 2015
 

Manchester United have the defensive qualities needed to mount a challenge for the Premier League title, but they are desperately lacking in attack.

According to reports in the Daily Mirror, the Old Trafford outfit intend to solve their problems by making a £42m move for Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG VS WAYNE ROONEY

The Gabon international has been absolutely on fire this season, fully justifying his new manager’s decision to play him through the middle.

In just 14 Bundesliga appearances, the 26-year-old has scored a staggering 17 goals, finding the net once every 72 minutes:

As a team, Manchester United have only scored 20 times in 14 Premier League games this season, with Wayne Rooney getting just two of these goals.

The England captain has not always operated as a centre-forward under Louis van Gaal, but using Aubameyang in that role would provide the Red Devils with a much-needed threat in behind opposition defences:
