Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move away from Westfalenstadion this summer and a former Gabon international has now confirmed that the player is ready to join Manchester United or Manchester City.
Former Gabon international Daniel Cousin confirmed that the player is interested in a move and will join a Premier League if the opportunity comes.
He also claimed that the player is ready for a big move and can continue his progress under a top quality manager like Mourinho or Guardiola. Aubameyang has been in sensational form for Dortmund this season and him leaving would be a major blow for the Germans.
“I think he wants to move to England,” Cousin said. “The Premier League is a different style to Germany; it’s more physical and, for me, it’s a good moment for Pierre to move to a big club like Man United or Man City.
“Yes [he would be a success]. I think he can score more goals and get more experience with a big team. With Mourinho at Man United, and Guardiola [at City], I think this kind of coach can help Pierre-Emerick to progress.”
Dortmund have already lost Mats Hummels to Bayern Munich.
Manchester United are in need of a top quality striker and these comments will certainly encourage Mourinho to make a move for the Dortmund star. Although the Germans won’t let him go on a bargain, Manchester United certainly have the resources to land him.
Aubameyang has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Arsenal as well.
