Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he will play for Real Madrid one day

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the most sought after strikers in world football right now.

The Borussia Dortmund star has scored an incredible 33 goals in 39 matches this season and has been linked with a whole host of European clubs.

If the speculation is to be believed, there is going to be an almighty bidding war for the Gabon international in the summer but Aubameyang himself has appeared to rule that out.

In a report last week, Spanish newspaper AS had suggested that Aubameyang has already agreed a pre-contract with Real Madrid but the 26-year-old has moved quickly to dispel those rumours.

Although, he dismissed claims of a contract already being signed with the Spanish club, he confidently predicts he will be playing at the Bernabeu ‘one day.'

"PSG? That's not my objective," Aubameyang told beIN Sports, as per "I can't say anything else about it. I can't see any reason to go back to France when I left three years ago.

"Real Madrid? There is no agreement but I promised my grandfather I would play there one day. Why wouldn't I want to discover new things? As I've said several times, I'd like to play in Spain and have good weather for once in my life!”

Grandfather's promise

Aubameyang is referring to his promise to his Grandfather that he would sign for the Spanish giants at some point in his career.

"My childhood dream? To play at Real Madrid," he revealed to L’Equipe in February.

"In 2014, before he died, I promised my grandfather who was from Avila, 110 kilometers from Madrid, that I would play there. It will be complicated, but it sits in a corner of my head.

"When I was a kid, I watched Hugo Sanchez videos. The backflip I sometimes do when I score is actually an homage to him,” he concluded.

Bargain signing

Dortmund signed the talented forward for just £9.5 million in July 2013 from Saint-Etienne. Last week, Aubameyang revealed that he had turned down a move to Tottenham a year previously due to “weird” negotiations.

But since arriving at the Westfalenstadion, he’s bagged 50 goals in 86 Bundesliga appearances making his transfer fee look like an absolute bargain.

The £9.5 million deal will look an even bigger bargain if Dortmund do decide to sell this summer with a fee of around £70 being required to secure his services.

While it’s clear that Aubameyang is yet to sign a deal with Real Madrid, it appears, as long as the club are interested, that he will soon be plying his trade for Los Blancos.
