Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he won’t be leaving Borussia Dortmund before the end of the current transfer window.
Manchester City and Real Madrid have been the two clubs consistently linked with a move for the Gabon international, with the striker declaring his desire to one day play for the Spanish side.
Aubameyang has scored 80 goals in 140 appearances for Dortmund and was a key reason for their impressive second-placed finish in the Bundesliga last campaign.
“I will definitely stay at BVB and I would like to no longer respond to this question,” Aubameyang told reporters at a press conference.
“We hope that we can annoy Bayern.”
