Having had his best season ever, many expected -and still expect- him to make what would be a step forward in his career, leave Borussia for an even bigger club, but it looks like he won’t be going anywhere.
For now, we assume that Aubameyang will stay
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told WAZ, choosing a verb (“assume”) that obviously leaves a window open for the Gabon international to leave.
On the other hand, teams are already gathering up for preseason, and Borussia are yet to receive a serious offer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
We arranged with him that we are open for talks but only until a certain point of time
Zorc added, which makes sense, since Dortmund will need time to find his replacement if he ends up leaving, and the later that happens, the harder it will be to find someone worthy of covering the huge gap that will be left at the team’s offensive line if the African striker does depart after all.
Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and teams from China are reported to be interested in the top scorer of last season’s Bundesliga, but as Zorc cleared out, Borussia will only sell at the right price, and only early enough, not the last days of the transfer window, so… whoever wants Aubameyang, needs to act fast and decisively.
