Gabon striker who has netted 20 goals in 20 Bundesliga matches this season has favoured Real Madrid over Manchester United as his next club.

Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that he has dreamt of playing for Los Blancos since he was a kid because of his grandfather’s relationship with Spanish capital city Madrid.

“My childhood dream? To play at Real
Madrid,” the 26-year-old who has also made four assists in the German top flight league as well as four goals in five Europa League matches told L’Equipe.

“In 2014, before he died, I promised my grandfather who was from Avila, 110 kilometers from Madrid, that I would play there. It will be complicated, but it sits in a corner of my head.

Aubameyang’s fine form for Dortmund this term has seen the reigning African footballer of the year linked with a move to United, with reports earlier this week suggesting that Red Devils executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has identified him as the club’s prime summer transfer target.

However, Louis van Gaal’s side will offer over £60 million to sign the forward as well as proposing a £200,000-per-week contract to him.

Aubameyang would represent a massive reprieve for United’s existing options with both Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial struggling to properly make the penny drop since their big money moves to Old Trafford.
