That’s why Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wanted to go to Arsenal London: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined FC Arsenal for 64 million euro in the winter. Now the former Bundesliga top scorer and Borussia Dortmund striker has talked about the reasons.

Gareth Bale back in Premier League?
Again there are rumors that Real Madrid Superstar Gareth Bale is thinking about returning to the Premier League. Having already named Tottenham Hotspurs, but obviously Manchester United are also interested. Gareth Bale played for Southampton and Tottenham in England’s top division from 2007 to 2013, ahead of his Spain involvement. The now 28-year-old Bale will almost certainly finish his career sometime in the Premier League, but the question is “when”.
There is only one small problem for Gareth Bale: Jose Mourinho. His former coach at Real Madrid is obviously not interested in a deal – contrary to the bosses at Manchester United. They are backing for a transfer of the Super Striker – a transfer fee of £84 million was called. What is also currently speaking against a transfer from Bale to Manchester United, top star Alexis Sanchez moved from Arsenal London to Old Trafford – in exchange with Henrikh Mkhitaryan. At least in the moment Gareth Bale must probably wait – perhaps even to a time after Jose Mourinho. It remains exciting …

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves Borussia Dortmund – no one has any doubts about that. The new hot address is called Arsenal London, that seems to be safe. But where is the problem? For one, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are not yet agreed regarding the transfer fee and probably also the high salary demands of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. On the other hand, after the sale of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, Arsenal London is also under pressure and will probably announce a transfer in the next few days.
Another highly sought-after player has extended his contract to Manchester City: midfield star Fernandinho. He has signed a new contract dated to 2020. This was announced by the Skyblues on Friday afternoon. “This is a club with a fantastic future and I want to be there for as long as possible,” said Fernandinho, who moved to Manchester from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013. The 32-year-old belongs to the regular staff under Pep Guardiola. From 23 league matches he was 22 times in the starting lineup.
This player will definitely not move to the Premier League: Malcom Oliveira, known as Malcom, the Brazilian footballer who plays as a forward for Girondins Bordeaux. Arsenal is currently not ready to pay the 50 million euro transfer fee. In the summer, however, they want to continue negotiations and hopes to be able to commit the 20-year-old then. That will probably increase the chances of a certain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang …

Manchester United vs Manchester City Fury
It’s was the night before the derby and all through the house, nothing was stirring, actually yes it was – Jose Mourinho was! Tomorrow, Manchester United will take on rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford, a game that could see first place Man City, soar further away from second place Man Utd. As it stands, both teams have played 15 games, but Man City are ahead with 8 points – 43 to 35, so a win for Jose Mourinho’s men is vital.
Jose Mourinho has accused Manchester City players of diving in his latest outburst, claiming that “a little bit of wind and they fall”. Pep Guardiola, the City manager has been praised often by Jose, but this statement is bound to ruffle some feathers. “One thing that I don’t like a bit is, that they lose their balance very easily” Jose said.
Deja Vu: If you paid close attention to the game between Manchester United and Arsenal last week, where Arsenal lost 3-1, Jose echoed the same concerns; “I leave for you the Arsenal players on the grass. The grass is absolutely beautiful – I think there is a desire to go on to the grass.“
Man United are without Paul Pogba for this derby game, because he picked up a red card in the game against Arsenal. Mourhino remains tight-lipped on how he plans to approach the City game; “You all want to know how we are going to play, everyone connected with football professionally or as a fan is questioning: who is going to play? How are we going to try to play? I’m not going to tell.
Even the players do not know who is going to play. We are working on principles of play. I want every player to be connected with it and ready for it. With the problems we have with absences it is important that other players are ready to play or be on the bench and come on, and to have different roles than they are used to.
So the work is much more global than the 11 players who are going to start. The players who are fit? Zlatan Ibrahimovic is available, Phil Jones is available, Marouane Fellaini I have to wait (until today); Michael Carrick is not available, Eric Bailly is not available. Nemanja Matic is injured but he plays.”
Sunday will mark the 175th Manchester derby, so which team has had the advantage over the other previously? We have done some digging and can tell youth in the previous 174 meetings, Man City have sealed 50 victories. Fifty two of those games were met with a draw and Manchester United bagged 72 wins – so this certainly puts Jose’s boys in favour of a win.
No other team in the Premier League, has scored more goals at old Trafford than Manchester City, scoring 27, but Chelsea have won more 6 more matches than City at Old Trafford.
