Barcelona and Chelsea meet to work out the LAST DETAILS for Aubameyang
Both clubs are in contact to solve the problems after the injury suffered by the Gabonese and some details in the deal
It all looked to be on rails for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea. Despite Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández's insistance on keeping the Gabon international, the club needs to clear wages to keep securing their finances and with Memphis Depay's move to Juventus all but in tatters, it looked like a done deal that Aubameyang would become a Blue.
However, some last minute issues have arisen and the clubs are now scrambling to put it back together. Aubameyang was violently assaulted in his own house, when he was with his family after break-in thieves attacked him, The Gabonese was beaten by the robbers and his jaw was fractured.
Now Barcelona and Chelsea are meeting to figure out how to proceed. The two main issues on the table are the structuring of the deal, and how to work with Aubameyang's injury. The Blues are told to have made a new offer with a fixed amount plus the transfer of Marcos Alonso, which is being analysed by Barça.
Chelsea are also requesting a check of Aubameyang's injury as part of the medical examinations should the deal go through. According to journalist Fabrizio Romano the injury is not a serious concern for the deal, but the West London club still want it checked out.
For now, the clubs remain in direct contact, working overtime to resolve the issues surrounding the deal. That would be the only thing that needs to be resolved, as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is told to have already agreed to a three year deal with Chelsea.
