The front Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang explained, in his presentation as a new Barcelona player, that he sees himself “playing for many years” in the azulgrana team, despite the fact that the contract he has signed until June 2025 has an exit option in June 2023.

Being here for many years is what I hope and what I dream of“added the Gabonese player, whose termination clause amounts to $114 million dollars.

The player from Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, with whom he admitted that his relationship did not end in the best way, defined himself "as a fast striker" and hopes “to help the team with a lot of goals“, although he did not dare to forecast a figure.
