Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke is adamant the club will only allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to leave if an outrageous offer comes in, and remains hopeful the Gabon international will stay at Signal Iduna Park.
His fine performances have seen him linked with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, with the forward having previously spoken of his desire to one day play for the Bernabeu giants.
Nevertheless, Watzke is not overly worried about a potential summer exit.”As of yet, I have no information that suggests Auba will leave Dortmund,” he told Sport Bild.
“If we were to reach that point, we will sit down and listen to each other, we have a lot of respect for Auba and he deserves that. “But there are not an awful lot of clubs that would be a step forward for him in my opinion. Either way, he will only leave Dortmund for an outrageous transfer fee if he does move. “That being said, we hope that he will stay.”
The 27-year-old, who has scored nine goals in hislast five matches for Dortmund, has a contract with the club until June 2020.
