The 26-year-old has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Manchester United, and his national team boss now claims he is in the midst of a transfer
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is in the process of leaving Borussia Dortmund, according to Gabon coach Jorge Costa.
The 26-year-old has been in sublime form for Dortmund this season, scoring 39 goals in 46 appearances.
Goal understands that Manchester United have been keeping a close eye on the striker but have been told that a £70 million bid is required in order to take him to Old Trafford this summer.
Real Madrid, who are in negotiations with Robert Lewandowski’s agent, are also keen on a move for Aubameyang and are ready to rival United.
Aubameyang was expected to feature for Gabon’s upcoming games against Mauritania and Ivory Coast, but it is now claimed that the striker has asked to be excused as he is in the middle of a transfer.
“Aubameyang has asked not to be selected [for the national team] because he is changing clubs,” Costa told RFI.
