Real Madrid have reportedly dropped out of the race to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer despite their transfer ban being lifted.

SPORT BILD report that Aubameyang doesn’t fit into the plans of Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu which makes a transfer to his dream club unlikely, however Manchester City are still circling for his signature.

Manchester City have been linked with the forward on several occasions and speculation regarding his future refuses to go away. If City are to sign the Gabonese international then they will have to fight off any competition from Ligue 1 big spenders PSG, as they look the club more likely to take Aubameyang away from Borussia Dortmund.

SPORT BILD stay that PSG are “the hottest in the race” whilst any move to China is a no-go, no matter how much money he is offered. Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are still taking a keen interest in his availability and he remains on their list of targets.
