Aubameyang reveals Man City talks

10 October 2016, 19:57

Nairobi - Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that he held talks with Manchester City in the off-season over a potential move to the Premier League club.

The 27-year-old ended last season as the Bundesliga's top scorer, and has kicked off this campaign in fine fashion with five goals in six matches.

His impressive goal-scoring form tempted the Citizens, as well as Real Madrid, to enquire about the Gabonese striker, who in the end decided to remain at Dortmund.

The former AC Milan, and Saint-Etienne frontman told Onze Mondial magazine: "It's true, there was contact. My father held talks with the club, but in the end there was nothing concrete.

"I think there was interest [from Real Madrid], but it was more distant so I didn't get too carried away."

Paris Saint Germain have been long-time admirers of Aubameyang, who has also in the past spoken of his desire to one day play for Real.

He explained: "They're [PSG] still a big team and I think they'll still be Ligue 1 champions this season. But there are one or two teams who could annoy them.

"At the end of my first season in the Bundesliga there was contact. And the next summer, too. In fact, almost every year. [PSG] took it poorly, it didn't happen - that's all I can say.

"I don't especially want to return to France immediately. But it's true that PSG have the ambition to win the Champions League, so they could be interested in a player like me."

And when quizzed about a potential move to Real, he added: "I was asked in an interview: 'What is the club of your dreams?' I replied: 'Real is the club of my heart and I made a promise to my grandfather to play there one day, I hope it will happen.'

"So it's just a target, I still have time. If they want me, they will come."
