First Mkhitaryan, now Aubameyang
Sven Mislintat is getting the band back together!
Two former Borussia Dortmund team mates, Man United’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, seem certain to be on the same team by the end of January.
The big new on Saturday evening was the confirmation, via the BBC, that Arsenal and Man United are swapping Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Indeed, Mkhitaryan is already in London to complete his Gunners move.
On Sunday morning Fabrizio Romano – who often writes for the Guardian – has taken to social media to report on Aubameyang’s Arsenal deal.
In a huge boon to the Gunners, it’s been reported that Arsenal have a ‘total agreement’ with the Gabon international striker.
Fabrizio Romano claims that Aubameyang’s personal terms have been sealed. The 28-year-old centre-forward is ready to sign a deal with Arsenal until 2021, while Auba will earn 10 million euros a season in north London.
#Aubameyang has now total agreement with Arsenal for his contract until 2021. Salary: €10M/season.
Arsenal have started official talks with Borussia Dortmund to reach an agreement… but BVB are going to ask €60M to sell Auba. Let's see 🔴 #transfers #AFC #BVB #Arsenal
