Barcelona 1-1 Manchester City: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a superb volley against Manchester City, Chelsea fans impressed.
Pierre-Emerick In a friendly match against Manchester City, Aubameyang may have scored his final goal while wearing a Barcelona jersey.
Aubameyang’s early contract termination by Arsenal and subsequent free transfer to Barcelona haven’t even been seven months apart. The incident was caught on camera by the All or Nothing crew.
Despite that brief absence from the Premier League, the forward might return to the country’s top division sooner than anyone might have anticipated.
The Gabon striker has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea, and since his present club must release finances to sign Jules Kounde, it is anticipated that he will leave before the transfer deadline next week.
But the 33-year-old still found time to score in Wednesday night’s friendly game against City, which was played for a good cause, before he said the Nou Camp farewell.
Following a free kick that was sent on towards the back post, the attacker slid the ball home from a wide angle beyond Stefan Ortega.
Fans of Thomas Tuchel’s club were undoubtedly intrigued by the goal and his celebration, as he didn’t really have one and instead just hugged teammates, which some fans saw to be a sign of his departure.
“He doesn’t actually rejoice. Very telling “a Chelsea supporter stated.
Only midfielders and defenders have scored goals for the Blues so far this season, according to a second, who added amusingly, “He has scored more goals against English clubs this season than all of our offense put together.”
Another person said, “Just don’t wear number nine Auba,” which is wise advise given the club’s number nine curse.
Another supporter, obviously convinced of the move following the most recent strike, remarked, “£25 million doesn’t seem too much anymore.”
The next opportunity for Aubameyang to increase his total at the club may come when Xavi’s squad plays Real Valladolid on Sunday night; after that, there are no more games until the deadline on next Thursday.
After an error from Inaki Pena, the former Borussia Dortmund forward’s goal on Wednesday offset Julian Alvarez’s opening score.
In honor of famous Barcelona goalkeeper and coach Juan Carlos Unzue, the Luzon Foundation will donate every dollar from the game to ALS research.
