Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pushes for dream Real Madrid move
And talk of the Gabon international’s move away from Dortmund to a number of interested clubs has been widespread all summer – but Aubameyang himself has reportedly told his employers it’s Madrid he has his heart set on.
According to Marca, he has told Dortmund’s board that if an acceptable offer comes in, to let him leave before the end of the window.
But Madrid have already splurged on Spain striker Alvaro Morata for £25m ahead of the new season and could be reluctant to sign another forward.
The CEO of Dortmund is adamant the club are in a strong position and claimed the forward has not been agitating for a move.
It seems like Dortmund will hold onto Aubameyang if anyone else comes in for him who is not Real, after he rejected a rival La Liga team last week – while the club themselves turned down a request from Italian side Inter Milan and Manchester City for the striker’s services.
“We want him to stay with us. As opposed to the players who left us recently, he has a long contract which runs until 2020. There is no pressure at all. And I am not under the impression that he wants to move.”
