Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Signs For Chelsea

Chelsea have now agreed a permanent deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona.

The 33-year-old will cost £12million and be included as part of a swap deal involving Marcos Alonso, who moves in the opposite direction.

Aubameyang will fly out to London this afternoon in order to sign and complete his medical, with Alonso travelling from Madrid to Catalonia to complete his own switch.

Chelsea have long had an agreement over personal terms, with the former Arsenal captain set to pen a two-year contract that will include the option for an extra season.

Unfortunately, Aubameyang will have to wait at least three weeks to make his Chelsea debut due to a broken jaw.

The injury was sustained when armed robbers attacked the forward in front of his family during a terrifying home burglary near Barcelona on Monday.

Chelsea have reviewed Aubameyang’s medical records after the attack and were happy to continue with the deal.
