Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he is considering leaving the German club this summer.
Aubameyang, 27, has been linked with a move to China, while he has often stated his desire to join Real Madrid and fulfil the wish of his grandfather. But he admitted that he is certainly weighing up his future.
“This is the question I am asking myself right now. It is a particular moment. I am fully considering a move away in the summer,” he told RMC. “Obviously, I feel very good here because of the magnificent fans. It is a big club. However, I am asking myself this question — If I want to take the next step, should I not leave?
“I do not have the answer. It will take a little time. I am 27 years old. If I want to do something in order to progress, then I will do it this summer. Is it worth it or not?
“I need to see what options there are. If I will be able to play. Obviously if I do not move, it means I will end my career here. I will take some time to reflect.”
Asked whether he would be interested in a future move to China, Aubameyang replied: “Going there is not an objective of mine. Especially now. I am completely excluding this for the moment.”
The Gabon international is contracted until 2020 and has 16 goals in 15 Bundesliga games this season. But it is La Liga which has caught his eye the most.
“A lot of people would like to see me in England,” he added. “This is not necessarily the league that attracts me the most though. It would allow me to develop further though. I really like the Spanish league and find it attractive.
“Forget Real [Madrid]. There has been too much talk surrounding that. There is more to life than just Real, even if it does remain a dream of mine.”
Aubameyang has also been linked to PSG and revealed that he would be quite happy to continue his career in Paris.
“The French league is clearly developing. It is really pleasing to see,” he said. “Paris, for me, is above everyone else in France. When they come for you, it is always attractive.
“It is France. I know the league well. It is my mother tongue. Inevitably, there is an attraction for me. A return? It might not be my first choice but of course it is not impossible.”
