Spanish side Real Madrid have reportedly rejected offers to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.
This is the situation with Los Blancos who are looking to bolster their already star-studded attack this term.
Having seen the trio of youngster James Rodriguez move to Bayern Munich, Alvaro Morata Chelsea and Mariano Diaz switched to Lyon, Zinedane Zidane is swooping for at least a reinforcement in his attack.
And Gabon international Aubameyang, who has offered himself as a prospect for Santiago Bernebeu, appears to be eligible quality in the current transfer market was reportedly offered
But while Aubameyang expressed his desire to don Madrid shirt in the future, Zidane has not looked his way but instead decided to swoop for a younger sensation Kylian Mbappe.
Yet after failing in their pursuit of Mbappe, Zidane had the chance to land Aubameyang but turned his face away despite the lack of depth in his attack.
Spanish publication Don Balon reports that the capital club have snubbed the opportunity to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, giving chance to Premier League champions Chelsea to intensify their interest unchallenged.
Although Aubameyang was said to be on his way back to AC Milan earlier in the month but the Italian side failed to meet Dortmund’s asking price, leaving them to turn their attention to Torino’s Andrea Belotti.
Without doubt, the 28-year-old is the most prolific striker in Europe after two successful seasons at the personal level with Dortmund, breaching the 40-goal mark in all competitions last season.
He ended the season as Bundesliga top scorer with 31 goals under his belt but has remained unsettled in continuing with the club, a situation that has brought in a number of clubs to seek his services.
