According to a story in the Spanish newspaper El Pais, the incident occurred at 1 am on Monday, and Aubameyang and his wife gave statements to the local police, who are currently working to identify and apprehend the criminals. Footballers’ homes occasionally become targets of robberies, but these incidents typically take place when the player isn’t at home—often while they are competing.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only recently relocated to Catalonia after leaving Arsenal as a free agent in January; his future at the Camp Nou beyond this summer is still up in the air. Since Robert Lewandowski was acquired in the summer, the Gabonese striker’s place on the field at Camp Nou is no longer guaranteed.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s compensation has increased this season in accordance with his contract with the organization, giving Barcelona an incentive to let him go as a starter who is not guaranteed. I The 33-year-summer old’s transfer to Chelsea has been mentioned.
In order to help Chelsea sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, an intermediary named Eugenio Botas visited Barcelona earlier this month. Since then, he has been seen numerous times with Mateu Alemany, the club’s director of football, and Jordi Cruyff, the director of sports. Mundo Deportivo has clarified the specifics of these symposia.
After spending time together at Borussia Dortmund, Aubameyang and Blues manager Thomas Tuchel are close. The two may reunite at Stamford Bridge this summer as Chelsea looks to substitute Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, who both left the team.
Despite having scored 13 goals in 24 appearances for Barcelona, Aubameyang has not been used as a substitute in either of their previous two La Liga games, including Sunday night’s four-goal victory over Real Valladolid at home.
