Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: ‘I will move to Real Madrid as I promised my grandfather’

His second-half strike may have sparked Borussia Dortmund’s comeback against Real Madrid, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is still dreaming of a switch to the Spanish giants.

The Gabon international struck on the hour mark at the Bernabeu on Wednesday evening, before Marco Reus claimed a dramatic equaliser as the 2-2 draw saw Dortmund pip Real to top spot in Champions League Group F.

Aubameyang, who has now netted 19 goals in 19 games this season, is never far away from rumours linking him with a move to Spanish capital – rumours he continues to encourage.

When quizzed about whether he still wanted to play for Real in the future, he affirmed his desire with a frank response.

“Yes. It’s a promise I made to my grandfather,” he told beIN Sports while still in side the Bernabeu.

“Right now I feel very good at Dortmund but in the future we’ll see.”

The 27-year-old is tied to Dortmund until 2020, but it is believed a move to the Champions League holders could materialise next summer.
