Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits his Bernabeu dream is over


Peter Bosz is certain that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is "very happy" and Borussia Dortmund despite recent comments suggesting a degree of disappointment over not getting a move to Real Madrid. Karim Benzema has agreed a new deal until 2021 with the Spanish champions, and with Isco and Marco Asensio having emerged as key players for Zindine Zidane alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, the ex-Saint-Etienne forward may struggle for a regular starting place.

"I understand him completely because it's his dream". It didn't happen and I am disappointed but I am also happy here.

The Gabonese striker requested permission to depart Dortmund at the start of the summer and was heavy linked with moves away from the Westfalenstadion, with his dream club Real Madrid the front-runners to secure his signature, as well as AC Milan and Chelsea. "I can only pay a compliment to my team with this performance coming only three days after Hamburg (Dortmund's midweek Bundesliga win)". And when Henrique came to PSG, they decided that they wouldn't take me.

"We had an agreement with Borussia that I could leave".

Last season's Bundesliga top scorer was widely tipped to leave Dortmund after the 2016-17 campaign, with clubs all over Europe and in China credited with interest.

"They don't want me", he said in a radio interview with RMC. But I'm also happy to stay. They went out of their way to send us a written offer, either to the club or to me. a disaster, frankly, they came here, they left, they said they were going to come back and they did not come back. "I was very interested by the project, [but] It did not happen for many reasons", he added.
