Manchester United and Arsenal supporters in the Transfer Tavern have been united together in their disappointment, after their midweek pints were interrupted by news a dream signing will not take place.
Both United and Arsenal are keen to bring the 22-goal forward to England in the summer but Dortmund chief Joachim Watzke has ruled-out any sale.
“The position is clear. Auba plays for Borussia Dortmund and the next years he will play at Borussia Dortmund. No question. There is no get-out clause. ”
“Money is a thing that can solve all other things. But it’s not realistic. Clubs of the Premier League have a lot of money. But so much as to get Aubameyang? It’s a little bit difficult.”
“It’s not question of money. We have money. We have no Sheikh. No Roman Abramovich. But we have money. We don’t need money. We need success in playing football.”
“Our profession is not to make deals. Our profession is to make a good team and play football. We had all the patience in the world with Aubameyang because we saw the potential in him.”
The news will come as disappointment to the Premier League sides who are eyeing the prolific forward but it’s hardly surprising that Dortmund will not part ways with their key-man, although our landlord believes the situation could change with a massive offer.
