Dortmund star Aubameyang dreams to play for the Spanish side Real Madrid.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s mother revealed that the Borussia Dortmund star has been a huge Real Madrid fan since childhood and he always wanted to play for the club.
Aubameyang’s current contract with Borussia Dortmund will keep him at the German club until 2020, but on numerous occasions the talented forward has revealed his desire to play for Real Madrid.
Aubameyang has proved his mettle at Dortmund and has been under the radar of Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid in the last few transfer windows. However, his mother Margarita Crespo suggested that Real Madrid would be in a pole position if Aubameyang decides to move away from Dortmund.
She told AS: “He promised his grandfather that he would play for Real Madrid and since he was a little boy he spoke about Madrid and never about Barcelona.”
“My family have always been Real Madrid and I would like to see him in white.”
“A move to Madrid would be lovely, but at the moment he is doing well at Dortmund and we will have to see what happens.”
Dotmund are all geared up to lock horns with Real Madrid in the final group stage fixture of Champions League with the top spot in the group at stake.
A draw would be enough for the men in yellow to top Group F.
Speaking ahead of the match, Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel said: “Aubameyang is a great player. He makes the side better, he makes me better and we can’t achieve our objectives without him.”
“He’s a quality player. All players would love to play in the best sides in the world, and one of those clubs is Real Madrid.”
“It’s always a pressure to play at the Santiago Bernabeu and he likes pressure and it often brings the best out in him.”
Aubameyang has played a quintessential role in the Dortmund attack over the last few seasons and has 98 goals to his name in 161 appearances.
