Chelsea does not lose its hopes of adding a striker before the end of the market and one of its objectives points to FC Barcelona. According to the journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 'blue' team will shortly present an offer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The market of summer 2022 has been very complex for Chelsea, but the directive headed by his new owner, the American Todd Bohely, expects to close a pair of reinforcements before the end of the window of passes the next 1 September. One of his aims is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, since Thomas Tuchel insists in adding a forward after the exit of Romelu Lukaku and the profile of the gabonés fits in what it looks for the technical body.
In this sense, the journalist Fabrizio Romano advanced the Tuesday that the managerial 'blue' will look for a direct approach with the forward before presenting a formal offer to the FC Barcelona. The group blaugrana will ask around 30 million euros, since the gabonés renewed until 2025 with a clause of rescission of 100 'kilos'. The weekend, 'The Mirror' already had filtered a first approach between the parts that the gabonés, purportedly, would have refused.
Chelsea have scheduled new round of talks with Pierre Aubameyang's camp this week. Todd Boehly wants to understand conditions of the deal also on personal terms, then it will be time to submit bid to Barça. 🚨🔵 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 16, 2022

The same information was retorted by 'Sportive World', ensuring that the player of 33 years would have communicated to Chelsea his intention to remain in the Barça. By his part, 'The Sun' planted to the gabonés in the orbit of the Manchester United, club that will go to by another forward in front of the possible course of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the meantime, the '17' saves silence and the Tuesday returned to Catalonia after a pair of free days in Paris.
For the moment, 'Auba' is the goleador of the era Xavi with 13 goals in 24, by which, for the technician egarense, the one of Laval is untransferable. Nevertheless, the directive has the last word and, in front of the problems of the club to inscribe to Jules Koundé and finish to close the staff, the future of the forward is still in the 'air'. The priority was to give him gone out to Frenkie of Jong, but the plans can change because of the radical posture of the Dutch.
The wage of Aubameyang, a problem for the club
In spite of signing by alone 2.5 million euros for his first semester like culé, the agreement of Pierre included a very elevated wage from this season that went through under the table after his contracting. The new whole salary of Aubameyang from the 2022-23 will be of 18 million net euros to the year, an identical figure to which will perceive Of Jong this season if it does not access to go down the wage.
From here that the plans of the managerial aim to do box with the gabonés, considering him as the piece prescindible of the reinforced attack blaugrana. Of course, neither Ferran Torres neither Ansu Fati are transferibles and, in front of the 'overbooking' of attackers of the club in front of the arrivals of Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski and the renewal of Ousmane Dembélé, 'Auba' aims like the most viable option to lighten the staff blaugrana, to two weeks of the closing of the market.
