Aubameyang Wants a Barcelona Return : Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is keen to terminate his contract prematurely so that he can return to Barcelona, according to reports.
The 33-year-old joined Chelsea in a £10million transfer from the La Liga giants in September, but he has struggled to establish himself as a regular first team starter.
He has been limited to just 21 appearances across all competitions this season having fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge.
And according to Spanish outlet Sport, he is subsequently eager to terminate his contract.
Aubameyang wants leave Chelsea so that he can return to Barcelona when the summer transfer window opens.
However, the La Liga leaders will have to manage their financial issues before facilitating another move for the striker.
Barcelona need to make up a financial deficit by selling several players, meaning they will struggle to buy new players unless the adequate funds are found.
Should Aubameyang become a free agent he will be able to join for nothing, although he will likely have to accept a huge pay cut.
The striker joined Barcelona at the beginning of 2022 after his Arsenal contract was terminated due to a series of disciplinary issues.
He scored 13 goals in 24 appearances in Spain, but he fell down the pecking order after Robert Lewandowski joined the club.
The former Gabon international striker has made just 21 appearances for the Blues this season.
