Aubameyang signs for Barcelona on free transfer

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed for Barcelona on a free transfer following his departure from Arsenal.

Aubameyang’s contract at Arsenal was terminated by mutual consent on Tuesday, with the 32-year-old having arrived in Spain on deadline day to thrash out terms with Barca.

A potential loan deal was explored first but the Blaugrana were unable to match Aubameyang’s £340,000-per-week salary and so the Gunners subsequently agreed to let him go as a free agent and sign for the Liga giants on a permanent deal.

Aubameyang trained with the Barca first team ahead of the deal being concluded and the club have now announced his arrival on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

“FC Barcelona and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have reached an agreement for the player to join the club after the striker terminated his contract with Arsenal FC,” a statement on the Blaugrana’s official website reads.

“The player will sign a contract until 30 June 2025 with an option to agree departure on 30 June 2023 and his buy-out clause will be set at 100 million euros.

“Shortly the club will provide details of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s presentation as a first-team player.”
