Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reveals desire for future move to Real Madrid

Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he has always dreamed of playing for Real Madrid.

The reigning African Footballer of the Year has scored 30 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund this season.

But the 26-year-old told L'Equipe that if he could sort a dream transfer, it would be to the Bernabeu in Madrid.

"My childhood dream was to play for Real Madrid," Aubameyang said.

"I promised my grandfather, who was from Avila some 110 kilometres away from Madrid, that I would play there. I realise that it will not be easy, but is always in the back of my mind.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says as a child he wanted to play for Real Madrid.

"I watched a lot of Hugo Sanchez videos when I was still a child. The somersault I sometimes do to celebrate a goal is a homage to him."

Aubameyang, who is under contract at Dortmund for four more seasons, also suggested that he would prefer a move to Spain over England or other top destinations in Europe.

"Playing for Real Madrid, or even another big Spanish club, would also be a great gift for my mother."
