The Gabon international is one of the most in-demand strikers in European football after starring for the Bundesliga side, and has already scored 20 goals for his club this season.

Dortmund have recently stated they would have to consider a sale if they received bids of €80 million for the forward, who has now claimed that he needs to quit the club in the summer.

“If I want to go to the next level, I need to leave in summer,” Aubameyang told Radio RMC

“Real Madrid is still a dream, but there has been too much noise.”

Aubameyang has openly admitted he wants to join Madrid in the past, revealing he made a promise to his late grandfather that he would play for los Blancos.

He reiterated to beINSports back in December: “Real has a close connection with my family.

“The media is doing too much [speculation]. It’s a childhood dream. But, as I always said, I play at Dortmund and I’m glad to be there and it’s really good for me.

“And I don’t even know if Madrid really wants me. If Real comes one day, then that’s good. Otherwise, life goes on. This is not a problem.”
