FC Barcelona Star, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Robbed!

Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the victim of a violent robbery at his home in the early hours of Monday morning.

Police are investigating the robbery in the town of Castelldefels, near Barcelona, at 01:00 local time.

El Pais reported armed robbers broke into the house, threatened the player and his wife and forced them to open a safe and stole jewellery.

Aubameyang was also reportedly beaten in the incident.

Barcelona said Aubameyang and his wife were OK following the robbery.

The Gabon international, 33, was an unused substitute as Barcelona beat Real Valladolid 4-0 at the Nou Camp on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are still keeping tabs on Aubameyang.  According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Chelsea are cooling their interest in the former Arsenal striker with United still lurking.

“Chelsea are having second thoughts about signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

“Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the Barcelona striker ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.”

The Red Devils have still not made an offer for the 33-year-old, something Chelsea have already done.

“Chelsea made a proposal worth £15million ($17.6m) to sign the former Arsenal striker earlier this month.

“They [Chelsea] have not yet reached an agreement with Barcelona or personal terms with the player.”

On the Blues’ reluctance and apparent change of heart regarding a possible move for the Gabon international, the article further goes on to say, “There is a question mark over the value of the proposed deal given Aubameyang is 33.”

“Aubameyang will expect a high salary, while Chelsea would want to include performance incentives.”

Along with Aubameyang, the 20-time English champions also have an interest in Memphis Depay.

It is clear that Ten Hag is after another striker because of the injury concerns around Anthony Martial and uncertainty over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Regardless of whether he stays or not, it can be deduced that the Dutchman does not see the 37-year-old as being crucial to his plans. Bringing in Aubameyang or Depay would offset the need for United’s current No 7.
