The Gabonese striker from Borussia Dortmund wants to play for Real Madrid. This is not a secret, because the forward has said it several times. His grandfather was from Ávila, a little town close to Madrid, and Aubameyang promised him that some day he will play for Los Blancos. Real Madrid also want him, so it’s the deal done?
The African player wants to keep his promise and he’s trying hard to get a Real Madrid deal. The first step is shining with his current team, a thing that he’s doing. In Bundesliga, he has scored 5 goals this season, but last year he scored 25. The two other seasons at Borussia, Aubameyang scored 16 and 13 goals. These are numbers for a Real Madrid striker.
The second step is getting close to Real Madrid. And he’s trying. Apart from making public his interest in playing for Los Blancos, Pierre-Emerick is also dealing with his current team. According to Sports Bild, Aubameyang has a deal with Borussia Dortmund so the club will ease the striker situation and he can leave the club in summer. This deal came after a summer with a lot of rumours, where Aubameyang finally decided to stay in Dortmund. To thank this, the yellow team will put no problems if the African striker finally decides to change Dortmund for Madrid.
However, the situation has a big problem. FIFA banned Real Madrid for signing in the next two transfer windows. Although Real Madrid have appealed to CAS, it’s very likely that Los Blancos are forced to not buy any player in the next year, so Aubameyang would be a dream.
The African striker already showed his quality in front of Florentino Pérez and Zinedine Zidane. Although Aubameyang didn’t play his best game, he showed good skills in the Champions League game in the group stage against Los Blancos. Will Aubameyang be a good replacement for Benzema?
