Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a target for Real Madrid. The players has said several times that he wants to play for Los Blancos and the Gabonese is showing a great quality to make his dream come true. However, it won’t be an easy or cheap transfer if Florentino Pérez finally decides to bring him on board.
According to the German newspaper Bild, Aubameyang transfer fee would be around €80M, a price for a star. This would mean that the Borussia Dortmund striker would be even more expensive than Cristiano Ronaldo, whose transfer fee was around €70M. Obviously, this summer we’ve seen how Manchester United or Juventus paid huge money for Paul Pogba or Gonzalo Higuaín. The African forward is not worse than the others.
He is continuing with his good job this season so far. In the 7 games, he’s appeared in the Bundesliga, he has scored 7 goals and he is currently in the second position in the goalscorer table after Köln striker Modeste. Last year, only in Bundesliga, he scored 25 goals in 31 games. Aubameyang has become one of the best scorers in the world.
In the Champions League he has shown also his quality. He faced Real Madrid in Dortmund but he was unable to score, after a great game from Real Madrid defenders. However, in the away game in Lisbon, he scored a perfect chip to open the scorer in Portugal.
Aubameyang’s grandfather was a big Real Madrid supporter because his mother’s family is Spanish. The striker said several times that he promised his grandfather that he would play eventually for Real Madrid. He’s trying hard, so this promise becomes true but it won’t be easy. Los Blancos have currently two good strikers in the squad –Benzema and Morata– and the club has been banned to sign any player in the next two transfer windows. It will be difficult that Borussia Dortmund could retain one year more a player like Aubameyang.
