Chelsea star looking to terminate contract this summer to join European giants
Chelsea star looking to terminate contract this summer to join European giants.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will look to terminate his contract at Chelsea this season as the forward looks to return to one of his old clubs.
That is according to Todofichajes, who reports that the 33-year-old wants to return to Barcelona ahead of next season and is willing to terminate his current deal at Stamford Bridge to do so.
The West London club will be happy to do this also as the Blues need a big clearout this summer in order to cooperate with financial fair play regulations.
Since Thomas Tuchel’s departure from Chelsea this season, Aubameyang has played just 550 minutes in the Premier League, scoring one goal.
This is a transaction that would suit Barcelona because the Catalan club is still struggling financially. Aubameyang would be a free agent and would back up Robert Lewandowski during the next season.
If the 33-year-old wants to play for the rest of his career, this is not the decision for him. According to the report, the forward wants to go, but there are still many measures to be taken.
