Doing my usual perusal of Arsenal related headlines I came across the beauty that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said yes to a transfer to Manchester United.
So I did my own research, went to Tuttosport and typed in the name Aubameyang into their search facility.
And nope, no headlines about Aubameyang saying yes to Manchester United and you would have thought that was fairly big news.
I did see the name Lukaku in a headline from the choices and thought I would try that and there you go, it was contained within that particular article.
About halfway down the page, I found the name Aubamayeng but I could not understand a word because it was all in Italian and so on to the notoriously unreliable Google translation service and this is what it said.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said yes to Manchester United. This can make the Red Devils more malleable on the Belgian so that Inter made a first offer equal to 60 million (ie the figure to which the attacker is budgeted). Yesterday a new summit took place with Federico Pastorello, an intermediary in the negotiations. Between today and tomorrow it closes for Sensi: easier than the counterpart is Gravillon instead of Vergani. Meanwhile, Agoumé’s agent has confirmed that he is close to Inter.
That is literally it, just eight words, no back story, nothing. You would have thought there would have been some sort of explanation, anything, but nope.
There is simply no way this is at all credible. I am not saying it will not happen but I am saying that there is no reliable evidence to back up the sensational headlines.
For now, I am dismissing this one as nonsense.
