Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Confirms Stay With Borussia Dortmund This Summer

Gabon International Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confirmed his stay with Borussia Dortmund this summer despite having offers from AC Milan, Chelsea and Manchester City as well as a move to Chinese Super League. 

He told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag after the Super Cup defeat to Bayern Munich, he was happy and will be staying with Borussia Dortmund. 

"It is true that I spoke to Borussia Dortmund before I went on vacation," he said. "I told them my thoughts, that I was maybe ready to try something different. It was open and fair talks with Michael Zorc [Dortmund director of football] and Hans-Joachin Watzke [Dortmund CEO].

"But none of the clubs that wanted me could make it happen. So I'll stay here at Borussia Dortmund. I like staying here very much, as I feel at home in Dortmund."

The striker had been linked to a number of big clubs a cross Europe in clouding a move to the Chinese Super League 

"It is normal that you think about it, if so much money is offered.

"I know that many people have said that you cannot go to China, because the football (there) is a step back. But I think that anybody would think about it when he gets such an offer.

"I had an offer, but I think the Chinese have been hard pressed to make an offer to Dortmund. I think that the structures are not yet as professional as in Europe."
