Former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang revealed that he wants to help Barcelona into the Champions League after signing a three and a half year deal with the club. His contract has an £83.4m release clause and will be free to leave on June 30, 2023. Aubameyang leaves Arsenal after joining four years ago for £60m from Dortmund.
“I’m very proud, especially because my family is Spanish from my mother’s side,” Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said after completing his move to Barcelona. “I’m really proud and happy to be here. My main goal is to help the team and give everything I can to bring the team back into the Champions League and stuff like that. I’m just happy to be here and I will try to give everything. It’s amazing to have him (Xavi) as a coach, he’s been a fantastic player as everyone knows and I’m sure as a coach he will bring us something that we will learn.”
“To the Arsenal fans, thank you for making London home for myself and my family for the past four years,” he posted on Twitter. “We went through ups and downs together and your support meant everything to me. Having the chance to win trophies and the honour of being the captain of this club is something I will forever keep in my heart. I have always been 100 per cent focused and committed on doing everything I can for this club which is why leaving without a real goodbye hurts – but that is football.”
