Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is all set to complete a stunning transfer to Chinese super club, Tianjin Quanjian for a reported 81 Million Euro deal. He will earn around 500,000 pounds per week and 30 Million euro per year, in what will be one of the most expensive transfers of all time.
The Borussia Dortmund ace striker has wanted out of the club for quite a while now. The Gabon international is one of the biggest names on the transfer market, which is why some of the biggest clubs in Europe are looking to add him to their squads.
But Dortmund are playing hard ball over their star player, as they are not willing to let him go for anything less than 60 million.
There was talk that Real Madrid wanted to buy Aubameyang last summer, but talks of such a deal are not happening anymore. With Madrid no longer an option, the Premier League looked like the only other destination for Aubameyang. But that was before this gigantic offer from China came about.
Aubameyang had scored 31 goals in 31 matches for Dortmund last summer and has publicly stated that he wants to move to a new club. He recently set social media ablaze when he posted a picture of himself with the caption, ‘Ready for new adventures’.
Tianjin’s muli-billionaire chairman Shu Yuhuiis is a big fan of the pacy striker and wants to sign him at all cost. The Chinese Football Development has passed a rule which states that any club that pays a transfer fee above 5.9 million euros for a foreign player has to pay double.
This would be an incredible transfer coup for the Chinese club and it is something that we will need to keep a close eye on.
