Real Madrid is one of the clubs that pursue Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-but want the Gunners response by the middle of next month
Real Madrid has set a deadline of 15 June for Arsenal to decide on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The La Liga giants are among the clubs chasing the Gunners striker who’s just 13 months left on his north London contract.
Aubameyang is not expected to sign a new deal at the Emirates, leaving Arsenal to decide whether to cash in now or to allow its contract to run down.
Real want to sign him, but they won’t wait to see if the Gabon star will join them until the middle of next month.
Madrid is willing to sign the striker who is out of contract at the end of next season and looks likely to leave the club playing football in the Champions League.
Arsenal is currently ninth in the Premier League table, 18-point adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea and could also miss out on football in the Europa League.
One possibility that the Spaniards wanted to discuss was a potential swap offer that included Dani Ceballos.
The Gabon international contract at the Emirates Stadium is set to expire at the end of next season and it has been reported that the attacker will try to move on during the transfer window this summer. A whole host of clubs have been cited, including Madrid, with an interest in the 30-year-old who scored 20 times in 32 appearances during the 2019-20 campaign.
According to The Mirror, Los Blancos wants Arsenal to decide on whether to sanction the forwards’ departure by the 2020-21 season before 15 June. Manchester United, Chelsea, and Barcelona are also expected to monitor developments as Aubameyang heads his contract with Mikel Arteta for the final 12 months of his contract. For the Gunners, former Borussia Dortmund forward had netted 61 times in 97 appearances.
