Aubameyang has made Chelsea transfer decision amid Memphis Depay move to Juventus is getting closer than ever.
According to SPORT, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 33, has accepted a three-year contract offer from Chelsea, which suggests that he may be moving closer to leaving Barcelona.
The powerful people in the Premier League have been putting a lot of pressure on Aubameyang to leave Barça, and they have been in negotiations with both the team and the striker’s camp about a transfer before the transfer window shuts.
According to reports, Chelsea put forward a bid of €18 million plus Marcos Alonso to recruit the former captain of Arsenal. The Catalan giants, who do not want the left-back as part of the trade, are not interested in the idea.
As a result, negotiations between the two teams to reach a transfer deal are still ongoing.
But the talks with Aubameyang appear to be moving along much more easily.
According to SPORT, Chelsea has actually made the 33-year-old striker a three-year contract offer that would pay him more than what he makes at Barcelona right now. And Aubameyang is thought to have given the contract proposal the go-ahead.
The personal details between Chelsea and the Gabonese striker now appear to be settled, and the deal is now contingent on the Blues and Barcelona reaching an agreement on a transfer cost.
There is a sense of urgency to finish Aubameyang’s exit since the Catalans need to register Jules Kounde. Because there is not much time left in the window and they need a suitable striker to lead the line, Chelsea is also eager to finalize the transaction.
Therefore, there is a good likelihood that the two teams will soon achieve an agreement through dialogue.
