Gabon coach: Aubameyang is leaving Dortmund

The 26-year-old has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Manchester United, and his national team boss now claims he is in the midst of a transfer.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is in the process of leaving Borussia Dortmund, according to Gabon coach Jorge Costa.

The 26-year-old has been in sublime form for Dortmund this season, scoring 39 goals in 46 appearances.

Aubameyang was expected to feature for Gabon’s upcoming games against Mauritania and Ivory Coast, but Costa says the striker has asked to be excused because he is in the middle of a transfer.

“Aubameyang has asked not to be selected [for the national team] because he is changing clubs,” Costa told RFI.
