United have been linked with a slew of players this summer, and have a ‘complete list’ of 18 targets.

They are ‘prioritising’ the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka before any other, however, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eager to bring in young, hungry recruits.

Yet Goldstein claimed on Tuesday evening that United ‘are interested in Aubameyang,’ and have already made an opening offer.

“I’ve got someone on the inside – not United, by the way, someone on the inside – who, every so often, will tell me transfer gossip. I would say he has a hit ratio of about, quite high, 75-25. Right? He’s told me quite a few that does happen, not just at United but other clubs as well.

“He told me about Anthony Martial, which I tweeted two days before United even approached. It was one of those, ‘how do you know?’. It was one of those.

“He has told me that United are interested in Aubameyang. What do you make of that? He’s got two years left on his deal, just under. He is 29 years old. He’s the finished article. United did something similar with Van Persie. Romelu Lukaku isn’t doing it for Solskjaer, I’m led to believe.

“Do you want to know the number I’m being told? I think it’s crazy money for a 29-year-old. What would you say? Two years left on his deal, scores goals.

“That’s what I’m being told,” he adds, holding up a sheet which apparently has ‘£70m’ written on it.

“There’s the first offer. For a 29-year-old. He’s only got two years left. If you’re at Arsenal and you’re in roughly the same sort of place as United at the moment, and United come in for you, where do you go?

“I think it fits quite well. I’m not saying it’s gonna happen but the person who’s told me, as I said, is a 75-25.”
