Borussia Dortmund are likely to set a price tag of £68.5 million if Manchester City and Real Madrid want to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in summer.

It is believed that Manchester City are the Gabonese forward’s main admirers after Real Madrid reportedly dropped out of the race due to concerns of where he would fit it.

Aubameyang has dreams of playing for Real Madrid but such dreams may not materialise if Real Madrid don’t submit a substantial bid for Borussia Dortmund’s consideration, however Manchester City are much more likely to stump up the cash as Pep Guardiola looks to improve his side.

Speaking to Kicker TV, Dortmund Chief Executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said:

“We can never guarantee that a player will stay with Borussia Dortmund forever, but our strength is to always find new solutions.

“With an €80m offer, I would be thinking about talking to Rauball and Zorc. If we had one (an offer), we would have to get together with Pierre-Emerick.

“We always have to differentiate between situations where there is such an offer, but we have no pressure… I would prefer it if no offer came.’

“He (Aubameyang) is definitely good enough to go to an even bigger club.”
