When Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined Barcelona for free, he took a large paycut to facilitate the move on the basis that he would be compensated over the course of the rest of his deal.

Not long after he arrived, however, it was claimed that he was one 25 players who had been put up for sale. Just as they did with Frenkie de Jong, it seemed like Barcelona were prepared to go back on their agreement with the forward.

Now, it is being claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing the player, whom Barcelona got for free from Arsenal.

At the time, Xavi called the transfer a ‘gift fallen from the sky’ and, given they can demand a transfer fee for the Aubameyang, he’s not wrong.

Barcelona got the goals they needed for the second half of the season and, now, could pocket a significant sum on top, too.

Chelsea have reportedly already been in touch with Auba to sound him out about a move, although at this point no bid has been forthcoming and Chelsea are believed to view him as a back-up option, should other moves fail to happen.
