Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang On his Way To Barcelona?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to leave Arsenal by giving his ‘OK’ to a move to FC Barcelona, according to reports. A close friend of Samuel Umtiti’s, Aubameyang also gets on well with winger Ousmane Dembele from their sole season together in the Bundesliga and, considering the growing Francophone contingent in the Camp Nou locker room.
Mundo Deportivo’s Fernando Polo broke the story to the sports world and wrote that the situation, in geting the Gunners to sell their captain, is ‘very difficult’ while the 30-year-old stands at risk of being aleniated by his current fans for entertaining proposals from elsewhere.
Gabriel Martinelli may loosen their resolve especially when considering their Gabon international’s contract expires next year.
At the turn of 2021 he could even decide to join Barça on a free, therefore making it more sensible to try and receive some sort of compensation for a player they paid a then-club record fee of $73mn for in January 2018.
