Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has insisted that the club will only agree to part ways with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if they receive an ‘outrageous offer’ for the forward.
Aubameyang has been in red hot form for Dortmund this season, and has already scored 23 goals in 23 Bundesliga appearances so far. The 27-year-old has also attracted huge interest from the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City, as well as Manchester United, but Real Madrid remain the favourites in the race for the striker’s signature.
In fact, Aubameyang, whose current contract with BVB expires in the summer of 2020, has previously expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid one day, and the Gabon international’s dream switch to the Spanish capital may occur sooner than later, as per reports.
Many trusted sources claim the Dortmund star is set to leave the German giants at the end of this season, with the La Liga labelled as his most likely destination.
However, as per Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke, the club will only allow Aubameyang to leave if they receive a worthy enough offer in exchange.
Watzke recently told Sports Bild: “As of yet, I have no information that suggests Auba will leave Dortmund. If we were to reach that point, we will sit down and listen to each other, we have a lot of respect for Auba and he deserves that.
“But there are not an awful lot of clubs that would be a step forward for him in my opinion. Either way, he will only leave Dortmund for an outrageous transfer fee if he does move. That being said, we hope that he will stay.”
