Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has publicly revealed that it is very likely that he will be leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of this season.
Aubameyang has put all the European powerhouses interested in his services on high alert, after claiming that the upcoming summer would be the perfect time for him to leave Dortmund and move on to another club if he wishes to take it up to the next level.
Speaking to Radio RMC, the Gabon international stated:
“If I want to go to the next level, I need to leave in the summer.”

The star striker further talked about his ‘dream move’ to the Spanish capital, along with the interest expressed in him from clubs belonging to various top leagues.
“Real Madrid is still a dream, but there has been too much noise,” he added.
“I have an important choice to make. Many people would like to see me in England. [The Premier League is] not necessarily the championship that attracts me the most. I like La Liga a lot. Paris is also an attraction. French is, of course, my first language.”
The 27-year-old has talked about Real Madrid on previous occasions as well, having once revealed how the famous club held a special bond with his family.
“Real has a close connection with my family,” Auba told beIN Sports back in December. “It’s a childhood dream. But, as I always said, I play at Dortmund and I’m glad to be there and it’s really good for me. And I don’t even know if Madrid really wants me. If Real comes one day, then that’s good.”
And following his recent comments, it won’t be a surprise if Madrid do approach Aubameyang come summer. However, with BVB recently stating they would only sanction a transfer if they receive an offer worth €80 million, it remains to be seen if Real – or any interested club, for that matter – agree to cough up that sort of money for the pacey forward.
