Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ready to quit Chelsea, MySportDab reports.
The former Barcelona star joined Chelsea as an out-of-favor forward at Camp Nou after the Catalans signed Robert Lewandowski, and choose to keep Memphis Depay.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Chelsea when former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was still in charge of the team.
After the sack of Thomas Tuchel and the appointment of Graham Potter as the new Chelsea manager, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has struggled to break into the team’s starting lineup.
Graham Potter prefers starting Raheem Sterling ahead of the Gabon international.
The former Brighton manager has reduced him to cameo appearances off the bench, making his role at the club continue to finish.
Chelsea has now added Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix to the list of forwards at the club.
The Blues signed the Portuguese star on loan from Atletico Madrid for £10million with no buy option after the end of the loan spell.
MySportDab understands the signing of Joao Felix will further heighten competition on the Chelsea frontline, and the likelihood of Pierre-Emerick breaking into the starting is further slimming down.
Already, he has fallen down Graham Potter’s pecking order and will end up watching the game more from the bench than playing it
Hence, the former Arsenal star is looking for every possible means to exit the club to preserve his career amid dwindling Stamford Bridge fortunes.
Since November, Aubameyang is yet to start a single game for Chelsea.
A Spanish media outlet ES has reported Aubameyang is ready to return to Barcelona and “play for free” if necessary amid his struggles at Chelsea.
