Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is leaving no doubt as to where he would like to play next.
Though he still has a contract with the Bundesliga giants until 2020, Africa’s reigning player of the year told ZDF there is only one club he would "immediately say yes" to joining should they come a knocking: Real Madrid.
"Dortmund is a fantastic club, critical for my career," Aubameyang said. "But my Spanish grandfather on my mother’s side always wished that I play in Spain. And if, then at Real Madrid. Before his death two years ago I promised him, one day to play for Real — and I’m working hard for it."

Fear not, Dortmund fans. So far, there’s been no contact between Aubameyang and Real Madrid, and the Gabon international said everything in Dortmund is "super" at the moment. Real are also pretty much set at striker with Alvaro Morata returning to the club to spell Karim Benzema.
Still, after scoring 39 goals last season for Dortmund, it’s only a matter of time before the world’s biggest clubs will look to get their greedy hands on the 27-year-old.
