Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed he vowed to his grandfather of playing for Real Madrid

Arsenal star striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is wanted by Real Madrid in a summer transfer with his Arsenal career set to come to an end, and if the deal to Los Blancos becomes possible, it would come good on a promise he made to his grandfather before he died.

The 30-year old, said: “Before he died two years ago, I promised him that one day I would play for Real Madrid.”

“My grandfather was from Avila, not far from Madrid. It’s what I said to him.”

“I know it’s not easy but it’s something I keep in mind. I celebrate my goals with a cartwheel in honour of Hugo Sanchez.”

“I’ve seen many videos of him on the internet and I’ve been following him since I was a boy.”

Aubameyang’s current contract expires in 2021 and the club [Arsenal] is desperate not to lose another valuable asset for free following Aaron Ramsey‘s departure to Juventus
