Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that he will sign for Real Madrid in the future to fulfill a promise made to his family. The German club came back from being two goals down to draw the game and secure top position in the group, with Aubameyang playing a part in both goals.
The Gabonese striker scored the first goal and assisted the second for Marco Reus to put the scores level before throwing a major hint to Madrid over a possible transfer in the future. The Madridistas are currently top of the La Liga table, six points above Barcelona and are currently unbeaten in 35 games in all competitions.
Manchester United and Arsenal are also interested in signing the striker, with the Gunners having had a £80m ($101m) bid rejected for the player last summer, according to an agent. Jose Mourinho wants the striker to add more attacking impetus to their misfiring front force and could make a bid for the player next summer.
"Yes [I still want to play for Real], it's a promise I made to my grandfather," he told beIN Sports, as quoted by Goal, when asked if he would consider signing for Real. "Right now I feel very good at Dortmund but in the future we'll see. We don't mind who we play. At half-time we talked about how we all knew we could do something and we did very well in the second-half."
Meanwhile, Reus has revealed that Dortmund were lucky to take a point from the fixture as the Spanish club missed a few chances while they were able to slot theirs away as they came. The German was not 100% fit and did not start the game as he was not confident of completing 90 minutes.
"The 2-2 belongs to 99 per cent to Aubameyang and only 1% to me. It was very important to stand up to Real Madrid twice. We did not play some actions very well when we had the chance to counter against two or three Real players. Real had some good chances, so it was a little bit lucky not to get a third goal. We hoped for a lucky punch and reached it," Reus said.
