Barcelona signs Aubameyang for free on transfer deadline day
Barcelona has completed the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal on a free transfer.
Aubameyang and Arsenal has been in a loggerhead after he was accused of some disciplinary issues. Auba was stripped off his captain armband and was left behind in the club’s warm-weather training camp in Dubai.
Aubameyang has not made the Arsenal line-up since December 6th. He featured 163 times for the Gunners, scoring 92 goals.
Aubameyang will earn a relative low salary compared to the £350,000 a week he earned at Arsenal.
Arsenal will reportedly save £25m from separating with the 32-year-old who had 18 months left on his contract.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang joins Barcelona, done deal and here we go. Contract agreed and now set to be signed by Aubameyang in Barcelona headquarters. Medical successfully completed. 🔵🔴 #FCB
