Italian transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Chelsea are ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Romano went on to state that United’s move for the player has been ‘ruled out’ with Aubameyang now focused on the Chelsea bid. He tweeted:

“No negotiations between Pierre Aubameyang and Man United as things stand. It was ruled out days ago, Pierre is focused on Chelsea bid as he wants UCL football.”

Romano added that the player’s party will meet with the club’s representatives on Thursday, August 18 to discuss personal terms. He also noted that Aubameyang’s current coach Xavi Hernandez is unwilling to lose the striker, who joined Barcelona only in January this year:

“New direct contacts on Thursday to discuss personal terms conditions. Xavi, still insisting to keep Auba.”
