Chinese club make world record bid for Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Share this on

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reportedly the subject of a crazy world record bid by Shanghai SIPG. While we’re in no doubt that a Chinese club would be willing to spend big on the Borussia Dortmund ace, it’s worth taking the report with a pinch of salt. Tancredi Palmeri was the journalist who reported the link and he has a track record of being wrong – or plain old lying.

In the past, he’s claimed that Radamel Falcao to Real Madrid was a done deal, that Nani and Chicharito would leave Man United in a part exchange move for Arturo Vidal. Gonzalo Higuain would be an Arsenal player if Palmeri told the truth. The football landscape would be very different. He tends to break exclusives with CAPITAL LETTERS FOR EXTRA CREDIBILITY.

On this occasion, he wrote: “BOOM! AUBAMEYANG HAS RECEIVED AN OFFER OF 41m€ PER YEAR FROM SHANGHAI, AND 150m€ FOR BORUSSIA DORTMUND, BOTH WOULD BEAT WORLD RECORDS!

With the way that clubs from the Chinese Super League are spending money, it seems very plausible. Aubameyang would be the highest profile player to move there and it would be a huge statement for the league. But surely, even if this was true, he wouldn’t want to leave Europe. He could probably go to any club he wants. Real Madrid are keen.
