Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doesn’t rule out Borussia Dortmund departure

Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits he is thinking about leaving the Bundesliga club next summer, to further his career.

“I am thinking about a departure next summer,” Aubameyang told RMC.

“I feel very good here [at Dortmund] because the supporters are great. It is still a big club. But I ask myself, if I want to reach a new level, should I not leave? I have no response, it takes a little time. If I want to reach another level, inevitably, I must leave this summer. Is it worth it or not? We have to see what the proposals are. If I do not move, it means I will finish my career here. I’ll take time to think.”

From past reports, we do know that Real Madrid would be the only club Aubameyang would leave Dortmund for however, Zinedine Zidane has said that he doesn’t know if the Gabon international would suit his system.

On a move to the Chinese Super League: “It is not a goal to go there. Especially now, I totally exclude that for now.”

“Many people would like to see me in England. It is not the championship that attracts me the most. But it could allow me to take a step. I love the Spanish championship. LaLiga attracts me a lot. The French championship is in full progression, it is really nice to see. I know the championship well. This is my first language, it can attract. It might not be my first option but [a return] is not inconceivable.”
