Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be on his way to Real Madrid next summer, according to reports.
The Gabon striker has been in phenomenal form this season for Dortmund. The recently crowned African Player of the Year has scored 33 goals in all competitions, and has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League as well.
During the January transfer window, Arsenal had lodged a massive €60m bid for the 26-year-old striker, however, the offer was deemed way short of his valuation.
Premier League rivals Manchester United are also seemingly interested for his signature. Several reports from both English and French media last month suggested that United had made contact with the player’s agent over a possible transfer.
The Red Devils are willing to pay in excess of £60m and offer him a £200,000-a-week contract to join Old Trafford next summer.
But, it seems Real Madrid have moved quickly ahead of other potential suitors.
According to reports from Spanish newspaper AS, via Sky Sports, Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Aubameyang.
Dortmund have been angered by the agreement (probably Madrid haven’t approached the club first) that has taken place between the player and Madrid.
The German giants are demanding a non-negotiable transfer fee of €100m.
Moving to other transfer news:
Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are showing a keen interest in signing the highly rated Zagreb midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, who is currently plying his trade in Italy, on loan at Inter Milan.
Brozovic’s loan deal with Inter will expire at the end of the season, but according to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, via Sky Sport, the Nerazzurri wants him to sign a permanent deal at the club.
However, Zagreb will be ready to sell their player to the highest bidder, provided they receive formal offers from the aforementioned clubs. Inter in all probability would first try to sign him permanently and then may cash in on him, if required.
Dortmund have denied a deal has been agreed for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to move to Real Madrid, contrary to what Spanish newspaper AS have reported earlier today.
Borussia sporting director Michael Zorc told Bild: “It’s total nonsense. We’ve received neither an offer nor an enquiry.”
