Aubameyang Chelsea move stalls as Blues refuse crucial contract detail

Chelsea are desperate for a striker. 

Although the Blues have recently welcomed Armando Broja back from a loan spell with Southampton last season, other attacking options are limited, prompting a late rush for a new forward.

Although there aren’t many strikers available on the market, Barcelona striker and former Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as a possible option.

Aubameyang, who is familiar with Thomas Tuchel from their time together at Borussia Dortmund, could prove to be a cost-effective attacking solution, even if only in the short term.

Despite appearing open to returning to the Premier League and Barcelona’s precarious financial situation, Chelsea have been unable to finalise a deal.

The latest development in the ongoing saga comes from The Sun, which claims the Gabonese forward wants a two-year deal at Stamford Bridge but the Blues are only willing to offer a one-year deal.

Chelsea, who are notoriously strict when it comes to mature players, appear hesitant to violate their policies in order to secure Barcelona’s number 17.

Knowing this, and the fact that talks between all parties have now stalled, will undoubtedly allow another club looking for a striker to swoop in and offer what the Blues would not.

Chelsea’s pursuit may become more complicated now that Manchester United has joined the race, according to Gianluca Di Marzio. 

United are looking to strengthen their attacking line and have made a “fresh approach” for the services of the 33-year-old.

Barcelona, for their part, must still reach an agreement to help them get out of their financial bind.
