- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang promised his grandpa to play for Real Madrid
- Manchester United are also said to be interested in the Gabonese star
- Aubameyang currently plays for Arsenal in the Premier League
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reportedly promised his grandpa that he would play for Real Madrid which comes as a good news for the Spanish giants.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has been a target for many clubs in Europe with Real Madrid said to be leading the chase for the Gabonese superstar.
There have been reports that Aubameyang wants to win titles before he retires from football which he feels might not come at Arsenal.
Last season, Aubameyang had the chance to win a title with Arsenal when they got to the final of the Europa League, but they were beaten by Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Arsenal's defeat against the Blues was said to have pained Aubameyang considering the fact that he wanted to win the title to prove a point.
"Before he died two years ago I promised him that one day I would play for Real Madrid. My grandfather was from Avila, not far from Madrid. It’s what I said to him.
"I know it’s not easy but it’s something I keep in mind. I celebrate my goals with a cartwheel in honour of Hugo Sanchez.
"I’ve seen many videos of him on the internet and I’ve been following him since I was a boy." Aubameyang explained.
