If reports making the rounds are anything to go by then, Real Madrid are on the verge of losing Gabonese star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to PSG.

The Bundesliga goal-machine Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had reportedly met with Paris Saint-Germain’s Director of Football Patrick Kluivert back in January over a potential summer move to Parc des Princes.

According to France Football, it claimed the Gabonese forward together with his father met with Kluivet in Milan and that the Les Perisiens Director of Football Patrick Kluivert in January over a potential summer move to the French side.

All Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke public attempts to keep him at Westfalenstadion as all result into futile efforts, though he is contracted with BVB until 2020.

Contrary to the PSG report, the 2015 African Footballer of the Year in 2015 has previously publicly stated his desire to someday play for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Last year the Gabon international stated, via ​beIN Sports: “Yes. It’s [playing for Real Madrid] a promise I made to my grandfather. Right now I feel very good at Dortmund but in the future we’ll see.”

It remains to be seen which side would win the battle of signing the Gabonese this summer as the 24-year-old who was recently named per Bwin, as the player most likely to become the first £100m transfer due to his contract deal that last till 2020.
