Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has confirmed that his father, who also acts as his agent, held initial talks with the Premier League giants.

The Gabon captain was linked with a move away from the Bundesliga club, but ultimately decided to stay.

"It's true, there was contact. My father held talks with the club, but in the end there was nothing concrete," Aubameyang told Onze.

The 27-year-old also took the oppotunity to explain comments he made earlier this year, about wanting to play for Real Madrid.

"I think there was interest (from Real Madrid), but it was more distant so I didn't get too carried away," he added.

"I was asked in an interview: 'What is the club of your dreams?' I replied: 'Real is the club of my heart and I made a promise to my grandfather to play there one day, I hope it will happen.'

"So it's just a target, I still have time. If they want me, they will come."

Aubameyang has made nine appearances in all competitions for Dortmund this season, scoring seven goals and assisting a further two strikes.

At the moment Real have 2 very good centre forwards in Benzema & Morata, even though Aubemeyang is better than both of them, I cant imagine Real would want to spend the money required to lure Aubemeyang to the Bernabeau. Unless they offcourse sell one of their current strikers.
