On August 24, Sport reported that Chelsea had ‘transferred a last offer’ of €20 million to recruit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona. We covered this story on August 24.
According to today’s issue of the same tabloid, which also states that the two clubs have still not come to an agreement about the transfer of the forward.
The La Liga team reportedly finds Chelsea’s €20 million offer to be “insufficient.” To try to obtain more money from the Blues for the Gabon international, they are tightening the noose.
In theory, Thomas Tuchel’s camp is unwilling to increase its bid for the 33-year-old. Barca, on the other hand, is attempting to meet their initial request of €30 million.
By offering bonuses in exchange for the former Arsenal player, Chelsea could be able to match these expectations or at least come close to doing so.
Xavi Hernández supported Aubameyang’s desire to stay at Camp Nou, although both men are aware of the Catalan club’s financial requirements.
The athlete “assumed that he will have to pack his things and travel to Stamford Bridge” For Barcelona to register Jules Koundé, their significant summer defensive acquisition, his exit is required.
Despite their disagreements, Barca and Chelsea are “quite clear,” according to Sport, that they will ultimately conclude a deal for Aubameyang.
The Blaugrana need urgent funds, while Tuchel has asked the Blues to sign Aubameyang.
