Is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set to follow in Robin van Persie's footsteps?

The Arsenal striker's unlikely transfer to the Red Devils has been likened to the Dutchman's move in 2012, but that couldn’t be further from the truth
The transfer window is often riddled with flimsy rumours, which explains the often repeated ‘silly season’ tag. Recently, news spread that Arsenal’s top forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be on his way to Manchester United before the close of the summer transfer window in England on August 8.
The gossip has prompted parallels with the summer of 2012, when the North London club sold Robin van Persie to their long-standing Manchester rivals.
In what was a blow to Arsene Wenger’s side, they lost their captain and talisman to the Red Devils as they could no longer match his ambition to win things. While the Gunners’ profile had been declining in the years before, RvP’s decision to move was a further knock on their reputation.
