Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to leave Chelsea and join Marseille, according to Fabrizio Romano. The clubs involved in the transfer have not swapped any money. The Gabonese forward is ready to go from West London to the South of France.
With OM, Aubameyang will agree to a three-year contract that will extend until 2026. On Wednesday night in Germany, the forward who previously played for Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund is scheduled to arrive at Marseille’s training facility. After passing his medical examinations on Thursday, the 34-year-old will complete his transfer and be introduced as a new member of Les Olympiens.
When it comes to lowering the size of their roster this summer, Chelsea has made significant progress. With Aubameyang about to become the 13th permanent departure, they have already allowed 12 players to leave. Only 11 of the striker’s 21 appearances during the previous campaign were starts.
Aubameyang joined the Blues in 2022, but due to his form and fitness issues, he was only able to score three goals for the team overall. His prior Ligue 1 experience includes 120 appearances for Saint-Etienne, Dijon, Lille, and Monaco. In those games, the striker scored 41 goals.
Since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, the Gabon captain has fallen out of favor’s with the Blues, and Thomas Tuchel, the man who brought him to the team, was fired shortly after his debut. Aubameyang has already drawn interest from the MLS and Saudi Arabia, but OM will bring him back to France. The attacker, who last competed for Saint-Étienne in 2013, is back in Ligue 1.
