One of Europe's most sought-after strikers claims he'll play at Real Madrid 'one day'

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also says that he will not sign for PSG as he has no reason to go back to France.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND FORWARD Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists that reports of an imminent move to Real Madrid are wide of the mark but has reiterated his desire to make the switch one day.

The Gabon international has been linked to the Spanish giants over his most prolific season yet for the German club, having scored at a rate of nearly a goal every game so far in 2015-16.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been mentioned in connection to him but, while he still remembers a promise that he made to his grandfather to one day represent Madrid, the former Saint-Etienne man has no plans to return to Ligue 1.

“PSG? That’s not my objective,” Aubameyang told beIN Sports. “I can’t say anything else about it. I can’t see any reason to go back to France when I left three years ago.

“Real Madrid? There is no agreement but I promised my grandfather I would play there one day. Why wouldn’t I want to discover new things? As I’ve said several times, I’d like to play in Spain and have good weather for once in my life!”

The 26-year-old has previously described representing Madrid as his “childhood dream” but maintains his position that rumours of a move this summer are “bulls**t”.
