Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pictured at Champions League final watching Real Madrid

If it wasn’t already obvious that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will move to Real Madrid this summer, then recent developments have seemingly made it a certainty.

Following a season where Borussia Dortmund’s star striker scored 36 goals in all competitions - 25 of which in the Bundesliga - Aubameyang has become the subject of much interest across Europe.

Real are reportedly the frontrunners, and it appears they’re close to striking a deal.

Reports per The Sun reinforce that notion, claiming that Gabon’s national team coach, Jorge Costa, said: “Aubameyang asked me not to be selected [for Friday’s friendly] because he is in the process of changing clubs.”

And as if that wasn’t enough, the 26-year-old was pictured watching Los Blancos in the Champions League final on Saturday night (see below).


Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has since slammed such speculation is "nonsense", but unless Aubameyang was at the San Siro to simply support one of Real or Atletico Madrid, a transfer appears imminent.

In signing for Zinedine Zidane’s side, the Gabonese would be disappointing a host of European clubs, especially Dortmund themselves.

Arsenal and Manchester United are both reported suitors but will have to go back to the drawing board amidst their search for a world-class finisher.

Both Premier League outfits are targeting various other strikers, of course, but Aubameyang’s age and ability is just what they need following underwhelming seasons.

The worst could be yet to come for Dortmund, however, given the sheer amount of interest in the likes of Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
