Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has stated that his main goal is to play for Real Madrid. And that only the La Liga giants can make him leave Dortmund.
Aubameyang had earlier stated in an interview, he promised his grandfather he’ll play for Real Madrid.
The Gabon international scored 39 goals for Dortmund last season. And has attracted interest from Atletico Madrid and Manchester City.
But Aubameyang has reiterated that only Zinedine Zidane’s side could tempt him away from Signal Iduna Park.
“This year, no,” he told ZDF when asked about a possible move.
“But the only club I would leave Dortmund for are Real Madrid. If they don’t come calling, I don’t leave.
“My grandfather, the dad of my mum, always wished that I would play in Spain. Two years ago, when he died, I promised him that someday I will play for Real – and I work hard to reach that goal.
“Real Madrid is my main goal but at the moment I like it in Dortmund. If there is a chance to go to Madrid, I will immediately say yes – but at the moment there is no contact.”
Aubameyang, who was on target in the 4-1 win over Manchester United in the International Champions Cup on Friday, has been joined at Dortmund by rising French star Ousmane Dembele.
And head coach Thomas Tuchel believes the 27-year-old could be the perfect mentor for the former Rennes teenager.
Tuchel said: “Because of his perfect French, Auba is the perfect integrative figure for Ousmane Dembele.
“I think that Auba is adult enough to play a role like this.”
