Aubameyang opens up on his three failed summer transfers

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that he had three possible exit routes from Borussia Dortmund this summer, but none came to fruition.

Aubameyang was expected to leave Dortmund after four successful seasons in Germany this summer.

The striker has often spoke of wanting to realise his “dream” of moving to Real Madrid, but no such move ever came close.

The 28-year-old, one of Europe’s top scorers in 2017, says Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and a move to the Chinese Super League were the only ones in the works.

“I have no dream,” he told RMC. “I shall no longer speak of Madrid. They don’t want me.

“This is not a problem. I move forward, I am well in Dortmund.

“We had an agreement with Borussia that I could leave. It didn’t happen. It is a disappointment. But I’m also happy to stay.

“Milan offered me something. I was very interested by the project, [but] it did not happen for many reasons.

“At the beginning of June I met Nasser. It was before Antero Henrique’s arrival. And when Henrique came to PSG, they decided that they wouldn’t take me.”

Aubameyang’s third reported option was a move to the Chinese Super League – one he never entertained.

“China, I didn’t take it seriously,” he said.

“It was a lack of professionalism. They delayed to send us a written offer – It was a disaster.”
