Exclusive – Aubameyang In Germany For Medical But St.Etienne Still To Agree Fee

9 years ago

The twists and turns of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s summer move seem to be in the final stages but sadly Newcastle United do not appear to have got involved in trying to sign the player.

Reports earlier today (from media in Italy) suggested that Aubameyang to Dortmund was a done deal but later today French website madeinfoot have revealed the player’s representatives have stated;

“The offer of Dortmund has not yet reached the 15 million expected by Saint-Etienne”, though they did confirm Aubameyang himself had agreed to the move.

This report was then backed up/confirmed by le10sport who also say the player has agreed to the move but Borussia Dortmund have only offered 14m Euros, around 1m Euros short of the 15m Euros (around £13m) that St.Etienne are believed to be demanding.

The story on le10sport also reports that while there is this fee to be agreed, the deal is imminent, and as proof of that they say Aubameyang is now in Germany completing his medical in preparation for the final agreement to be signed and sealed.

From a Newcastle perspective, this makes previous claims in the local/national press of an 18m Euros offer by United look a ‘little’ weak.
