Quotes attributed to Aubameyang over the weekend saw him linked with Manchester giants City and United.

The Gabon international is also understood to be attracting interest from Newcastle, who are in the market for a new forward after offloading Demba Ba to Chelsea.

Aubameyang has made no secret of his desire to test himself at a higher level in the future, with England his most likely destination.

He has, however, been quick to point out that he has no desire to secure a switch during the winter transfer window, and he has no intention of relaxing that stance.

"I say it again, I am not thinking about leaving," Aubameyang told L'Equipe.

"I have a lot of interest, but the best solution is to stay at St Etienne and leave in the summer.

"It is very clear in my mind that these will be my last six months with St Etienne. Then, I don't know.

"It is nice to already have offers from England and I hope to leave for a club that will allow me to keep improving. There could be a surprise, but I am not planning on staying in France."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
